News Release

May 31, 2002

Traffic On A Portion Of Washington Avenue (T.H. 197) in Bemidji Will Be Rerouted For A Week To Accommodate
On-Going Construction

     
Bemidji, Minn The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) would like to alert drivers that Washington Avenue, or Trunk Highway 197, from the junction with County Road 50 to Roosevelt Road will be closed beginning Monday, June 3rd, for approximately one week.

This closure will allow storm and sewer work to be conducted as part of the T.H. 197 reconstruction project and also to accommodate Burlington Northern Railroad to work on the tracks and install a new crossing and signal system.

Access to businesses can still be gained from Shevlin Avenue on the north or from the south via Washington Avenue which will remain open up to the Luekens' parking lot.

Drivers are urged to keep alert and drive with extreme caution through the construction zone.
