Yesterday the planned work on Broadway in Alexandria got underway. It is going to provide some travel headaches but they will be worth it.
For those of you traveling to the any of our lakes that are north or east of downtown Alexandria, I am going to pass on a reminder. Even without the construction you can shave time from your trip to your lake place at lakes such as Carlos, Le Homme Dieu, Miltona, Ida, Geneva but it’ll really be a saver this summer if you take the I-94 Osakis exit. You’ll pass through downtown Osakis and head towards Alexandria on County Road 82 (old Hwy 27). This will take you past Lake Victoria and Geneva to Nokomis Street and voila, you’ve skipped having to drive through downtown Alexandria.
