FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
COUNTY HIGHWAY 84 CLOSURE
The St. Louis County Public Works Department reported today that County Highway 84, located in Balkan Township, is closed until further notice. On Thursday, May 12, 2011, St. Louis County Public Works Department maintenance forces observed a culvert failure located approximately one (1) mile west of Minnesota Trunk Highway 73 on County Highway 84, north of Chisholm. County officials explained that water scoured away the soil around the culvert causing the overlaying pavement to collapse. St. Louis County engineers and maintenance personnel have assessed the damage and are currently planning the repair to County Highway 84.
Beginning today, May 13th, all traffic on County Highway 84 will be detoured. The road is estimated to be closed for approximately one (1) month for repairs. St. Louis County regrets the inconvenience to area residents and others who regularly use this route, and will provide further updates and timelines regarding repairs as soon as additional information is known.
