Cass Lake area road construction begins next week

Beginning June 14, motorists on Highway 2 west of Cass Lake can expect lane shifts while crews begin construction.

During the project, crews will be resurfacing Highway 2 from two miles east of Hubbard county road 46 to Highway 371 in Cass Lake.

Motorists can expect lane closures, lane shifts, and a short-term detour as this project is constructed.

The detour will begin in early July and last about a week.

Eastbound traffic will detour using Hubbard County Roads 45 and 9, and Cass County Road 22.

The project is estimated to be complete by August.

The contractor for this $2.5 million dollar project is Knife River.
