BEMIDJI, Minn. – Beginning May 31 motorists can expect lane closures and delays on Hwy 200 south of Bemidji according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. Construction crews will resurface the portion of Hwy 200 between Kabekona and Hwy 64.

The project will be done under traffic, and a pilot car and flaggers will guide motorists through a single-lane construction zone. It is expected to conclude by mid-June, and will create a smoother, safer driving surface. Visit the website for a project map and information mndot/d2/projects/hwy200-kabekona.
