Hwy 9 project between Borup and Beltrami begins May 18

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists on Highway 9 between Borup and Beltrami will experience staged detours beginning Monday, May 18, as crews begin bridge rehabilitation on five bridges on Highway 9.

The first stage of the detours will begin on May 18, with Highway 9 detoured between Ada and Crookston. Motorists driving south on Highway 9 from Crookston will proceed southeast on Highway 102 for nineteen miles, and then follow Highway 32 southbound for eighteen miles. Motorists will then proceed eleven miles west on Highway 200 to Ada.

Motorists on Highway 2 westbound who are going to Ada via Crookston will follow Highway 32 south from Marcoux 33 miles, and then proceed westbound on Highway 200 eleven miles to Ada.

This detour is expected to conclude around June 15, weather permitting.

Crews will be repairing and maintaining bridges along the route, necessitating the detour. This project will ensure that Highway 9 in Norman County will be a safer and smoother roadway for many years to come.
