MILACA (WJON News) -- A road construction project starting this spring will create a major headache for drivers who travel on Highway 23 in east central Minnesota.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is resurfacing and improving 12 miles of Highway 23 between Milaca and Ogilvie.

The project will require detours due to some box culverts and a pipe installation. A detour between Milaca and Bock will last 8-to-9 weeks and a detour between Bock and Ogilvie will last between 5-to-6 weeks.

The entire 12-mile project will take place from east of Mille Lacs County Road 2 in Milaca to the Groundhouse River east of Ogilvie.

The $6.5-million project will begin in mid-May and remain under construction through late October.
