Meeting for Hwy 92 construction in Bagley is set for May 9, project begins May 14

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Residents and business owners are invited to a pre-construction meeting for the Highway 92 project in Bagley, on Wednesday, May 9. The project is scheduled to begin on Monday, May 14. The meeting will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. at Bagley City Hall, 18 Main Avenue South. Representatives from the project team will be on hand to discuss project details and answer questions.

The project will reconstruct Highway 92 between the railroad tracks south of Highway 2 and Bagley High School. It requires multiple, staged detours including a two-week closure of the intersection at Highway 2/92 which will take place around late-June or early July.

Business owners can stay up to date with the construction schedule by attending weekly public meetings, held Thursdays at 2 p.m. at Bagley City Hall, beginning on May 17. Project details and detour maps can be found on the project website, mndot.gov/d2/projects/2018/hwy92-bagley.

Along with replacing the Highway 92 pavement, signal and sidewalks, the project includes pedestrian accessibility improvements and replacement of city utilities. A multi-use trail will be constructed on the east side of Highway 92 by Bagley Park and on the west side connecting Bagley High School with downtown.

Reierson Construction is the contractor for the $5.3 million project. It is expected to last into August.
