  • Please be aware the Hwy 38 will be reconstructed beginning May14th.

    Road regrading work will begin on May 14 and continue until September 14. Construction activities will begin in Marcell and continue South. A detour will be implemented for these same dates for “All Through Traffic.” Local traffic will be maintained at all times, however, Local access for residents and businesses will be updated on the MN DOT 511 website which we will be encouraging all of the public to use for current road closure information. 

    The stretch of highway between North Star Lake Campground and Marcell will be the first area to be reconstructed. Between May 14 and approximately June 1, daytime access to the campground will likely only be from the South. Weekly updates for access information will also be provided on a link found attached to the MN DOT 511 website. Travelers to the campground should also be encouraged to use the 511 site.
