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.
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."
like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation while
the new bridge was being constructed.
