Seal coating on Bemidji’s highways underway

Drivers on Highways 2, 71 and 197 in Bemidji can expect delays and lane closures as seal coat projects began Saturday.

The release from MnDOT says during this project, crews will seal coat sections of area highways beginning with Highway 71 south of Bemidji, Highway 197 in Bemidji, and Highway 2 east of Highway 71.

The project is expected to be completed in early September.
