Bemidji, MN. --- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) in conjunction with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (Mn/DNR) is notifying the public that selective tree cutting along a portion of State Highway 200 through Itasca State Park is scheduled to begin on Monday, March 20th.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, the selective tree cutting, which is in state highway right-of-way, is being conducted to accommodate construction on Highway 200 scheduled for this summer.
