Bridge improvement project on State Highway 72 in Waskish begins August 8th

     

Bemidji, MN. -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) is alerting the public to the start of a bridge improvement project on State Highway 72 in Waskish beginning Tuesday, August 8th. The exact location is Bridge #04002 over the Tamarac.River in Waskish.

According to Larry Randall, Mn/DOT Project Supervisor, the project will involve a new concrete wear course for the bridge deck which was replaced last year during a bridge rehabilitation project.

Randall said the work will require closing off one half of the bridge and approaches at a time to traffic with one lane open for the duration of the work. The open lane will be restricted to a 12-foot width. Traffic control will require a stop and take turn condition. No over-width or overweight permits will be allowed for the duration of the project.

Randall said the work is expected to be complete by August 25th, 2006.
