Mn/DOT SCHEDULED TO REOPEN EASTBOUND LANES OF HIGHWAY 2 BETWEEN BAGLEY AND WILTON NEXT WEEK

Bemidji, Mn. — The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) has scheduled the tentative re-opening of the eastbound traffic lanes on T.H. 2 between Bagley and Wilton for next Wednesday, July 12th.

This project has been underway since last summer and is expected to be fully completed by the end of July according to Duane Hill, Mn/DOT Project Engineer.

Hill said, “we are very near completion of this project except for the replacement of a box culvert in the westbound lanes about one mile east of Shevlin.” Hill cautioned that during this portion of the work, west bound traffic will be moved over to the east bound lanes for approximately one-half mile and motorists are advised that the speed limit in this area will be 40 miles per hour at the cross-over and 55 miles per hour through the work zone.

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience and compliance during the duration of this project and to please remember, when you “See Orange, we’re in the work zone together.”
