Traffic switch tomorrow for Highway 2 in Fosston-Erskine project

Drivers on Highway 2 from Erskine to Fosston can expect a traffic switch starting tomorrow.

According to a release from MnDOT, traffic will switch to the eastbound lanes on the west side of Fosston and return to head-to-head traffic in the westbound lanes near Airport Road.

Drivers needing access to Airport Road from Highway 2 will use Omland Avenue.

Crews are replacing the concrete roadway in the Highway 2 eastbound lanes between Erskine and Fosston and the Highway 2 westbound lanes in McIntosh.

The concrete will be replaced with bituminous pavement.

The highway will also be sealed and striped later this summer.
