Hwy 87 resurfacing scheduled for May 29-30

Current 7-ton load limit will be lifted when complete

BEMIDJI, Minn. — Motorists can expect delays on Highway 87 between Highway 71 and Hubbard County Road 13 as crews repave the road surface on May 29-30, weather permitting.

Highway 87 is currently under a 7-ton load limit restriction which will be lifted when the two-day resurfacing project is complete. A more in depth construction project is tentatively scheduled to take place in 2023.

During this work, flaggers will control traffic and motorists should plan for lane closures in the area where crews are working.

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, and reminds them to slow down in the work zone and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
