Mn/DOT Suspends Work on Trunk Highway 59 in Thief River Falls Until Next Spring

Bemidji, Minn— The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising the public that it is suspending it's work connected with the reconstruction of T.H. 1 and T.H. 59 in the city of Thief River Falls until next spring.

According to Bernie Stinson, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, "items left to complete on the project include the final wearing course, turf establishment and pavement markings."

Stinson said work will resume when road restrictions are lifted in the spring of 2002. He estimates that the paving will take approximately 4 days to complete, 5 days for turf establishment and 4 days for pavement markings.

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their cooperation and patience during this project and all construction projects around the state.
