Bemidji, MN. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is announcing the start of a construction detour on highway 59, north of Winger in Polk County, beginning on Monday, June 2nd.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, "the project is a pavement resurface and rehabilitation of highway 59 from the junction of Trunk Highway 2, to 1.58 miles south of Winger. The detour will be put in effect on June 2nd and is expected to last until mid-to-late August, depending on the weather."

Randall added, "Traffic traveling north will be detoured from the north side of Winger, east on Polk County Highway 1, then north on Polk County Highway 8 to Trunk Highway 2 at McIntosh. Traffic traveling south will take the same route in reverse."

The prime contractor is Northern Paving Inc. of Crookston.

Mn/DOT reminds motorists to allow themselves more travel time for construction detours and to slowdown in work zones.
