Motorists advised of traffic delays and lane closures on a portion of Trunk Highway 75 in Kittson County and U.S. Trunk Highway 2 in Polk County


Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is advising motorists to expect traffic delays this week and next week as a seal-coating project gets underway on Trunk Highway 75 between Donaldson and Hallock and on U.S. Trunk Highway 2 east of Fosston and west of Marcoux.

According to Earl Hill, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, the work on Highway 75 begins on Wednesday, July 21st and will last through Friday, July 23rd. Hill said drivers could expect 10-15 minute delays, as only one lane will be available for traffic.

The seal coating process on U.S. Trunk Highway 2 will occur on the east bound lanes from Fosston to three miles east, and in the west bound lanes from Marcoux to five miles west and is tentatively scheduled for Thursday through Saturday of this week, and continuing on Monday, July26th.

Hill said the schedule is contingent upon the weather.

Mn/DOT urges all drivers to slow down when approaching any construction zone and drive through the zone with extreme caution.
