Construction Work to Improve Bridge on Trunk Highway 1 West of Oslo Delayed Until June 17th, Detour Required

     

Bemidji, Mn. -- The starting date for construction work to improve the bridge over the Red River on T. H. 1 west of Oslo in Marshall County was expected to begin on Monday, June 10th, according to Shawn Groven, Project Engineer for the Minnesota Department of Transportation. But as of today, that starting date has been officially changed to Monday, June 17th.

Until construction actually begins the bridge will remain open for public use. Groven said the work is still expected to be completed by the end of July.

The work requires that the bridge over the Red River be closed and a detour put in place with westbound traffic being routed north on T.H. 220, west on T.H. 317, then south on Interstate 29.

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience and cooperation during construction.
