Orange barrels on a highway

Detour removed from Hwy 200 near Laporte


Hwy will be open to traffic by this afternoon

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists in Hubbard County will once again be able to travel Hwy 200 as the detour is lifted this afternoon.

Traffic has been detoured since May 28 to reconstruct the highway.

The Hwy 200 project regraded hills in the area, replaced culverts and resurfaced two miles of pavement. The project has reduced flooding impacts, improved drainage and enhanced the safety and ride quality for highway motorists.
