Mn/DOT Closes Temporary Bypass on Trunk Highway 310 Due to Flooding

Bemidji, Minn— If you're planning a trip that includes traveling on T.H. 310 north of Roseau, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising you to find an alternative route.

According to J.T. Anderson, Mn/DOT Resident Engineer in the Thief River Falls office, "Mn/DOT is replacing a bridge on trunk highway 310 and due to heavy amounts of rain in the area, a temporary bypass that was constructed is now flooded." Anderson added, "the bypass was closed this afternoon and will not be re-opened until the water recedes to a safer level." Anderson anticipates that the project could be delayed even longer due to water run- offs from surrounding areas.

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience as efforts continue around the state to improve and maintain the state highway transportation system.
