News Release

May 21, 2007


Construction on State Hwy. 32 from Norman/Clay County line north will start May 29th

     

Bemidji, Mn. - A construction project to improve the condition and safety of State Highway 32 from the Norman/Clay County line north to the north junction with State Highway 200 is scheduled to get underway on May 29th according to Shawn Groven, Project Engineer with the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Groven said the project consists of a bituminous mill and overlay with some construction of city utilities and roadway reconstruction in Twin Valley. In addition to this project, a bridge replacement 1.4 miles north of Twin Valley is scheduled to start June 18th and is expected to be complete by the end of August.

To accommodate construction, a detour will be put in place beginning May 29th for approximately eight miles with construction on the remaining length of the project done under traffic with a pilot car and flagging operations. Traffic from the south will be directed on to Norman CSAH 39 at Syre to State Highway 9 to State Highway 200 in Ada. Traffic from the north will use the same detour route in the opposite direction.

The work is expected to be complete by mid-July, weather permitting.
