Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is notifying the public that the detour on Highway 1 from the junction with Highway 72 at Shooks to the east junction with Highway 71 in Beltrami and Koochiching counties has been removed today.

Randall said paving work is underway and will be completed on the project with the use of flag persons and a pilot car. He added, "Motorists can expect minimal delays from Busy Corner to the east junction with Highway 71 and on Highway 72 from Blackduck to Busy Corner."
