Hwy 75 detour between Crookston and Euclid begins early June

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists on Highway 75 will encounter a detour between Crookston and Euclid in early June as a 12-mile construction project begins on Tuesday, May 29. Crews will initially begin in Euclid a few days before the detour is in place.

Motorists will detour onto Highway 2 at Crookston or Polk County Road 19 at Euclid. Then use County roads 60, 17 and 20. Once in place, the detour will last for about one month, weather permitting.

Local access will be maintained for residents and businesses along the project area, but the replacement of centerline culverts will alternate which areas are passible.

Along with resurfacing, the project includes culvert replacement, construction of turn lanes and improved pedestrian accessibility. Residents and motorists can view a project map and keep up to date with the current schedule on the project website mndot.gov/d2/projects/2018/hwy75-crookston-euclid.

Knife River Materials is the contractor for the $5.66 million project. It is expected to last through July, weather permitting.
