County approves detour agreement

Traffic on Highway 71 will briefly be detoured onto County Road 11 in the coming days.

At Wednesday’s meeting, Cottonwood County Commissioners approved a detour agreement, allowing traffic on Highway 71 to be detoured to include a short stretch of County Road 11.

Highway Engineer Nick Klisch noted that the Canadian Pacific Kansas City railway will be replacing the bridge overpass near Sanborn, which will close Highway 71 for roughly a week.

Traffic on Highway 71 will be detoured onto Highway 14, then onto Brown County Roads 3, 2 and 21 and then onto Cottonwood County Road 11 before reconnecting with Highway 71.
