Lane restrictions removed today

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Lane restrictions have been removed on the Hwy 317 bridge over the Red River in Marshall County.

The restrictions have been in place since July 15 to allow crews to conduct repairs and repaint the bridge. Crews will continue working in the area to wrap up final touches.

The North Dakota Department of Transportation was the lead agency on the project with MnDOT bearing half of the $1.5 million total cost. The project provided a safer bridge for motorists.
