Motorists driving through Lake Country should be aware of a pending road closure.

Windley Contracting will conduct work on Highway 97, between Winfield and Oyama, Thursday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

“As this work will include rock blasting, motorist should expect traffic delays during these times,” said Kyle Webb, with Windley.

This work will also include a 30-minute highway closure from the Oceola Road intersection to Ponderosa Road between 1 and 1:30 p.m.

“A detour route will be available via Oyama Road on the east side of Wood Lake,” said Webb.
