Resurfacing on Trunk Highway 71 from Blackduck to the Itasca/Koochiching County Line Scheduled to Start Thursday, May 6th

     

Bemidji, Mn. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising the public that a resurfacing project on Trunk Highway 71 from Blackduck north to the Itasca/Koochiching County line will begin on Thursday, May 6th.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, the work will consist of milling the highway pavement surface between the junctions with Highway 72 in Blackduck north to just beyond the Itasca-Koochiching County line. Randall said, "The wearing surface on the highway will be two-inch bituminous with gravel placed on the shoulders." He added, the work requires partial lane closures with flag persons on site along with a pilot car to guide motorists through the work zone and warned that drivers can expect some delays.

The work is scheduled for completion by May 27th.
