News Release

Mn/DOT Re-opens Trunk Highway 87 West of the Junction With Trunk Highway 64 at Badoura

Bemidji, Minn—The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is announcing that it has re-opened Trunk Highway 87 west of the junction with Trunk Highway 64 and east of Hubbard County Highway 11 as of late this afternoon. Mn/DOT had a 26 mile detour in place while a new bridge was being constructed over the Crow Wing River in that location.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, "although the bridge is being opened several weeks ahead of schedule, the public should be aware that workers will still be in the area for a few more days, and drivers are cautioned to slow down and obey posted speed advisories."

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while the new bridge was being constructed.
