Construction on Trunk Highway 71 From the Junction with Trunk Highway 197 (Paul Bunyan Drive N.W.) to Five Miles North will Begin on Tuesday, September 2nd

     


Bemidji, MN. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is announcing the start of a construction project in Bemidji on Trunk Highway 71 from the junction with Trunk Highway 197, also known as Paul Bunyan Drive N.W., to approximately five miles north.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, the work will start on Tuesday, September 2nd and is expected to be complete by September 27th.

Randall said the project would consist of some milling, a bituminous overlay and guardrail improvements. Randall added, "traffic will be reduced to one lane during daylight hours so motorists can expect some delays."

Mn/DOT is asking drivers to be extremely cautious and slow down in the work zone.
