Mn/DOT Begins Reconditioning of Trunk Highway 6 North of Talmoon in Itasca County, Detour Required

     

Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is alerting the public to a detour that will be put in place today as reconditioning of Trunk Highway 6 gets underway from Talmoon to the north junction with Trunk Highway 1 in Itasca county.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, the entire length of the project is 18.7 miles, which includes grading, box culverts and a bituminous overlay. Randall said travelers on this route should be prepared for a detour of 26.7 miles starting at Itasca County State Aid Highway 14, east to Trunk Highway 38, north to Itasca/Koochiching County State Aid Highway 5, northwest to Trunk Highway 6. The detour will be in reverse for southbound traffic. Randall cautions that County State Aid Highway 5 will be restricted to a 9-ton axle load and that no overweight or over width permits will be issued.

Randall said the detour would be in place for most of the summer with the entire project expected to be complete in early October.
