Railroad Tracks to be Removed Over Trunk Highway 197 Near First Street Southeast and Shevlin Avenue in Bemidji

     


Bemidji, Mn. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is alerting the public to the removal of the old railroad tracks over T.H. 197 near the intersection with 1st Street S.E. and Shevlin Avenue in Bemidji on Monday and Tuesday of next week.

To get the work done as quickly as possible, Mn/DOT will close the eastbound traffic lanes on T.H. 197 on Monday as a railroad crew works to remove the old tracks. On Tuesday, the crew will remove the tracks in the northwest bound lanes.

On both days, traffic on T.H. 197 will be merged to one lane in each direction.

Mn/DOT suggests that drivers allow more time for delay or seek alternative routes to ease congestion.
