News Release

June 7 , 2004

Paving of Hwy. 197 and the recreational trail on the south side of Lake Bemidji gets underway today, motorists warned to expect some delays
     

Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising the public to expect some traffic delays in the north bound lanes of Trunk Highway 197 on the south side of Lake Bemidji as paving work gets underway today.

According to Jim Bittmann, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, "The final bituminous wearing course on Highway 197 is expected to be complete this week along with the paving of the recreational trail that runs adjacent to Highway 197." Bittmann said the completion of the project also depends on weather conditions.

Bittmann cautions motorists to slow down in the construction zone and be prepared for some traffic delays due to lane closures.
