Beginning Aug. 20 and continuing for one month, road construction will result in a detour for patients and visitors who normally travel north on Highway 61 to reach Fairview Lakes Medical Center in Wyoming.
When approaching Fairview Lakes Medical Center from the south, patients and hospital visitors are advised to take I-35 north to Wyoming Exit 135. Turn right and drive east on East Viking Blvd. to Hwy. 61 and then drive south on Hwy. 61 to Fairview Blvd. Southbound access to the hospital is unchanged.
Signs will be posted along Hwy. 61 alerting drivers that Hwy. 61 is closed south of the medical center at 250th St. in Wyoming.
