News Release

July 28, 2000

MN/DOT WILL EXTEND DETOUR ON T.H. 6 NORTH OF TALMOON BEGINNING MONDAY, JULY 31ST

Bemidji, Mn. B The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising motorists who may be traveling north of Talmoon on T.H. 6 in Itasca County that they will be required to take an extended detour north on T.H. 38 from Marcell and then west on County Road 14 north of Bigfork and back to T.H. 6 beginning Monday, July 31st.

T.H. 6 from Deer River to just north of Talmoon is under construction and will be until the end of September. According to Roger Bachmann, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, "the entire length of the detour, which is approximately thirty-seven miles, will remain in effect for at least two weeks, pending weather and project conditions." Bachmann added,

"Mn/DOT is keeping as much of the road open as possible to accommodate local residents and tourists, however, anyone traveling in this area should slow down and obey all detour signing instructions."

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation during this project and would also like to remind drivers that anyone caught speeding through a work zone will be fined double under Minnesota law. Please, drive smart, drive safe.

When you see orange, remember, "we're in the work zone together."

See ORANGE.

We’re in the WORK ZONE Together
