As of 2011, the section of Haines Road between Morris Thomas Road and Skyline Parkway carries approximately 7,000 vehicles per day, on average. A $12 million reconstruction project of this section of roadway began in September 2012 and was completed in October 2013. Crews added curb and gutter along a newly constructed roadway, which should help prevent the kind of washouts and mudslides that left sections of the roadway temporarily closed after the June 2012 Duluth flood. This section of Haines Road now has wide shoulders, two uphill lanes, a wider downhill lane, and a sidewalk. A 300-foot-long culvert along Merritt Creek was also installed.

During the 2012–2013 reconstruction project, the roadway's notorious hairpin "horseshoe bend" section, as locals call it, on the 40th Avenue West segment of County Road 91, was straightened some, but could not be eliminated because of the steep nature of the hill, and the lack of additional funding that would have been required for an expensive project of blasting rock on the hillside.
