Width restriction lifted today from Trunk Highway 6 in Itasca County, motorists cautioned to remain alert to workers still in the construction zone

     

Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is notifying the public that width restrictions on Trunk Highway 6 between Talmoon and Itasca County State Aid Highway (CSAH) 14 are being removed today as reconstruction of this portion of highway is nearly completed.

Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor said, "we've completed paving and shoulder work, which allows us to remove the width restrictions on Trunk Highway 6." Randall added, "Motorists are being cautioned that some work still remains, that includes painting traffic lines on the highway and turf establishment." Randall said, "we hope to get the turf establishment completed this fall, but depending on weather, we may have to hold off until next spring."

Mn/DOT would like to thank the public for their patience during road construction.
