Paving of Hwy. 197 in Bemidji from 3rd St. to 23rd St. Scheduled to Start Monday, July 12th, Motorists Warned to Expect Some Delays

     

Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising the public to slow down and expect some minor traffic delays on Trunk Highway 197, also known as Bemidji Avenue, from 3rd Street to 23rd Street as paving gets underway on Monday, July 12th.

The paving project is a thin bituminous overlay, which will serve as a maintenance measure until this portion of the highway is reconstructed, tentatively scheduled for 2008.

Flaggers will be on site and drivers are cautioned to slow down and be alert to turning traffic. The project is expected to be complete by July 24th.
