News Release

July 7 , 2003

Construction to Widen Shoulders of Trunk Highway 1 Between Red Lake and Redby Scheduled to Begin Tuesday, July 8th

     

Bemidji, MN. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT), Red Lake Engineering and Red Lake Builders is advising the public that work on Highway 1 between Red Lake and Redby will get underway on Tuesday, July 8th.

According to Gordie Jallen of Red Lake Builders, the project will consist of widening the shoulders of Highway 1 and providing a bituminous overlay. Jallen said the speed limit will be reduced and traffic will be directed to alternating use of a single lane through each section of the work. The work is expected to be complete by the end of August.

In an area that has steady traffic, Mn/DOT cautions drivers to slow down, be patient and allow more time to get through the construction zone.
