Open house for the Highway 87 Hubbard construction projects will be held October 4

BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will host an open house on Wednesday, October 4 about the 2024 and 2025 construction projects on Highway 87. The open house will be held at the Hubbard Community Center (12141 County 6) from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Project information as well as detour maps will be on display. Members of the public are welcome to attend and ask questions about the upcoming projects.

Construction on Highway 87, between Highway 71 and Highway 64, will take place in 2024 and 2025. It is split into three different sections, and each section has its own construction plan and traffic impacts.

The center portion will take place in 2024, and the western/eastern portions in 2025. The highway needs long-term improvements to address intersection safety and aging infrastructure.
