Bemidji, Mn. -- The Minnesota Department
of Transportation (Mn/DOT) would like to alert drivers about upcoming
repair work that will be done on portions of Trunk Highway 11
between Baudette and Indus beginning on Monday, August 26, 2002.
Heavy rains during
June and early July caused damage to portions of Highway 11, it's
shoulders and washed out areas of in-slopes. An effort to prevent
further damage to Highway 11 is being conducted under an emergency
repair contract with Bowman Asphalt Inc. of International Falls.
Highway 11 will be
kept open during the work, but traffic will be restricted to intermittent
use of one lane at times.
Mn/DOT is asking drivers
to be patient and use extreme caution in these areas as work gets
underway. The work is expected to be complete by October 15, 2002.
