Hwy 11 construction from Hwy 72 to Clementson delayed to 2012


BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation rejected bids received Aug. 19 for a project to improve a section of Hwy 11 in Lake Of The Woods County. The bids received were not complete and could not be accepted.


The planned project extends from the junction with Hwy 72 east of Baudette to the Clementson Bridge. Crews will replace culverts, widen the shoulders and construct a new surface.


A public meeting was held on June 18 to discuss the plans with area residents. Work was expected to begin this fall, but will be delayed.


MnDOT will reschedule the project for another bid letting at a later date this year. Construction is now scheduled to begin in May or June 2012.
