Construction To Improve a Portion of Trunk Highway 2 Between Erskine and Trunk Highway 32 Begins Today, July 7th

     

Bemidji, MN. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising the public that work to improve a portion of the east bound lanes of Trunk Highway 2 between Erskine and Trunk Highway 32 will begin today, July 7th.

According to Shawn Groven, Mn/DOT Project Engineer, the work will consist of bituminous milling, concrete crack and sealing and a bituminous overlay.

Groven said "starting Monday, July 14th, traffic on the east bound lanes will be switched over to the west bound lanes, with traffic reduced to one lane in each direction." Groven added, "the speed limit will be reduced through the construction zone to 55 mph and motorists are asked to obey all signing instructions."

Groven estimates the project to be complete by mid-September, depending on weather conditions.
