News Release

July 14, 2000

ROAD WORK CONTINUES ON T.H. 34 FROM PARK RAPIDS TO OSAGE

Bemidji, Mn. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising motorists that construction work to improve T.H. 34 from Park Rapids to Osage continues and is not expected to be completely finished until the end of August or early September.

The $1.5 million project consists of milling, overlay, turn lanes, by-pass lanes and culvert repair. According to Todd Vonasek, Mn/DOT Resident Engineer in Construction, paving of the final surface is tentatively scheduled to start sometime during the week of July 17th. Vonasek added, "however, we have made some adjustments to the schedules due to equipment availability, but we do anticipate this project will remain on schedule."

Other work remaining consists of finishing on turn lanes, painting/striping, some shoulder work, top soil and sodding.

Mn/DOT would like to thank drivers for their patience through construction zones and remind the public that when you "See Orange, we're in the work zone together."
