Hwy 9 detour removed between Ada and Borup

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists can once again travel on Highway 9 between Ada and Borup as the detour has been lifted and the project is complete.

The detour, which began May 23, allowed crews to replace the bridge over the Wild Rice River.

Redstone Construction completed the $2.6 million project, which created a higher clearance over the Wild Rice River. It will reduce flooding potential and ensure a safer roadway for motorists in the region.
