Bridge work on Hwy 200 begins Thursday
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Starting Thursday, June 9, conditions and weather permitting, crews will begin the Twin Lakes Creek bridge replacement on Hwy 200. The roadway will be impassable at the bridge site to all traffic through August.
As a reminder, Hwy 200 is closed between Mahnomen and Roy Lake for road construction. Traffic is being detoured to Highway 59, Highway 113 and County Road 39.
The bridge replacement was originally scheduled to start in mid-May, but was delayed due to high water levels. During the bridge replacement, local traffic – Highway 200 residents or others who have a destination within the work zone – will need to take the detour or find an alternate route around the bridge.
In addition to the bridge replacement, the project also includes shoulder widening, pavement repairs, culvert replacements, turn lanes, and other safety and pedestrian accessibility improvements. Local traffic can expect lane closures in the areas where crews are working and reduced speeds near Roy Lake. Throughout the duration of construction, driveway access is being maintained.
