The work is part of an overall project to reconstruct Highway 92 between the railroad tracks south of Highway 2 and Bagley High School. The project requires multiple, staged detours including the two-week closure of the intersection at Highways 2/92 (Stage 1B). Project details and detour maps can be found on the project website, mndot.gov/d2/projects/2018/hwy92-bagley.

Since the project started in May, crews have completed Stage 1A on the south side of town and Stage 4 near the high school. Once Stage 1B is complete, they will begin work on Main Avenue North for Stages 2 and 3.
