MN/DOT RE-OPENS NORTH END OF TRUNK HIGHWAY 6 DETOUR NORTH OF TALMOON

Bemidji, Mn. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is announcing that they have re-opened the north section of a thirty-seven mile detour which has been in place to accommodate construction work on T.H. 6 south of Bowstring to just north of Talmoon in Itasca county.

The north section detour, which extended from Marcell on T.H. 38 to Itasca County Rd. 14 west to the junction with T.H. 6 was lifted on Monday of this week.

Roger Bachman, MnDOT Project Supervisor cautioned, "the south end of the detour remains in place and drivers are cautioned to slow down and follow all signing instructions." The south end of the detour extends from T.H. 6 north of Deer River, east on County Rd. 19, north and northeast on County Rd. 48 to Trunk Highway 38, north on T.H. 38 to Marcell, then west on T.H. 286 to Talmoon.

Bachman added, "the work is expected to be completed by the end of September and we appreciate the patience of motorists who are traveling in this area."

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