The Highway 23 North Gap project continues to force drivers to detour around the work zone this fall. However, on November 3rd, work will pause for the winter and the road will reopen.

Come spring 2023, the road will close again for completion of the project.

The project covers nine miles of Highway 23 between County Road 33 in Paynesville and County Road 12 in Richmond. It is being expanded to four lanes of traffic as part of the Corridors of Commerce construction program.

Construction will take place again from May 2023 to November 2023 prompting another detour.
