Detour period extended

The detour to Northfield Hospital will remain in effect through Monday, Oct. 18. Those traveling to the hospital should use Highway 19 to approach from the west by way of Eaves Avenue.

North Avenue was closed at Cedar Avenue on Oct. 12 to allow for utility work on Mayo Clinic’s radiation oncology center, now under construction. Officials hoped to have the work completed by Oct. 15, but determined more time was needed.
