New detour in Bagley begins today

Intersection of Highways 2/92 closed for two weeks 

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists on Highways 2 and 92 in Bagley will encounter a new detour starting July 12, as crews close the intersection of Highway 2 and Highway 92/Main Avenue for approximately two weeks, weather permitting.

Traffic will follow Clearwater Avenue, First Street, Great Northern Avenue and Getchell Avenue.


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.
