MnDOT wraps up 2022 construction season

MnDOT has wrapped up its 2022 construction season with nearly 260 projects in the books.

According to a release, one of the more notable projects was the Highway 71 project in Bemidji, with a resurface, a new roundabout and nine intersection improvements.

MnDOT Commissioner Nancy Daubenberger says the robust season this year improved the state’s transportation system with new roads, bridges, safer intersections, and improved access for pedestrians and bicyclists.
