News Release

September 5, 2000

RAILROAD CROSSING UPGRADE IN BAGLEY WILL REQUIRE DETOUR NEXT WEEK

Bemidji, Mn. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising the public that it will be upgrading the railroad crossing on T.H. 92 (Main Avenue) in Bagley during the week of September 11 – 15th.

Monty Eidem, Mn/DOT Traffic Engineer in Bemidji, said the work will consist of replacing the rubberized crossing surface with concrete panels. He added, "this is being done in order to create a smoother ride over the tracks."

To accommodate the work, MnDOT will have a detour in place around the work site. Motorists will be directed to use Water Plant Drive S.W. to Clearwater Avenue and unto 1st Street. Traffic coming from the opposite direction will take the route vice versa.

Mn/DOT reminds motorists to, please slow down when you "See Orange," and obey all signing instructions through a construction zone.

See ORANGE.
