Crews have removed the detour on Highway 78 between Battle Lake and Ottertail, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Highway 78 in that area has been closed since late August while crews replaced culverts, resurfaced the highway and reconstructed Lake Avenue in downtown Battle Lake.

Motorists may encounter intermittent lane closures between Battle Lake and Perham as crews complete work near the shoulders and rural approaches.
