From the City Facebook page: 🚧 Construction Update from City of Hermantown 🚧 Final paving efforts for Ugstad Road, beginning from Arrowhead Road south to Maple Grove Road, will take place on Friday, September 8, beginning at 7:30 a.m. This will cause significant delays in the areas where the work is being performed. Non-residents should avoid this area entirely on Friday, while residents should be aware of delays when equipment is at their homes. Paving at the entrances and exits to Truman and Roosevelt is expected to occur between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., and residents in this area should make every effort to avoid non-emergency trips during this time. We appreciate everyone's patience and understanding as this project continues.
🚧 Construction Update from City of Hermantown 🚧 As part of the Ugstad Road/Arrowhead Road project, there will be a full closure of the intersection of Arrowhead and Ugstad roads on Wednesday, August 30. This is expected to be a one-day closure to complete the necessary work in the intersection. Hermantown Community Schools ISD 700 and Hermantown Arena will be accessible, but the intersection itself will be fully closed. Other routes will be necessary to avoid this intersection.
Road Construction Update from City of Hermantown - Arrowhead Road near Ugstad Road and the schools will be reopening soon.
