News Release

September 21, 2000

MN/DOT WILL RE-OPEN TRUNK HIGHWAY 6 BETWEEN DEER RIVER AND TALMOON NEXT WEEK

Bemidji, Mn. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is notifying the public that effective Monday, September 25th, it will officially re-open that portion of T.H. 6 north of Deer River to Talmoon which has been closed for construction.

Roger Bachmann, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, cautions motorists that although the detour will be off, work continues on the project for at least 3 more weeks. Bachmann said, "paving of the highway is underway and drivers are asked to proceed with caution through the area, as flagging operations are in effect." He added, "in addition to paving, shoulder work and turf establishment also will be taking place and motorists should be alert to equipment and workers in the area."

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience during the construction season.
