BEMIDJI- Motorists traveling along Highway 59 and Highway 2 near Erskine can use the eastbound and westbound ramps starting today. Traffic is reduced to a two-way, two-lane as construction on Highway 2 continues with the resurfacing of the road.
Crews have been working since May to reconstruct and replace the concrete pavement on Highway 2.
Bridge repair and maintenance has also been completed on the highway 59 overpass as well as the replacement of curbs, gutters, storm sewers, and culverts.
The $12.6 million project will make safer, longer lasting road surfaces and bridges. The project is scheduled to be complete in October.
