Hwy 1 detour east of Oslo begins June 7  


BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a detour from Hwy 1 between Alvarado and Warren when construction gets underway Tuesday, June 7, to replace a culvert and resurface the highway.


Eastbound traffic will be detoured north on Marshall County Road 10, to Marshall County Road 4, east to Hwy 75 north of Argyle, then south on Highway 75 to Warren.  Westbound traffic will follow the same detour in reverse. The detour is expected to be in place until June 25.


The next phase of work to improve Hwy 1 from Alvarado to Oslo will begin in late June. This segment of work also will require a detour. Additional information will be provided at a later date.


Motorists are advised to plan for extra travel time when detours are in place.
