BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists on Highway 75 between Euclid and Warren will experience a detour beginning May 31 as crews replace 20 miles of pavement and culverts.
The detour is located west of Highway 75 on Marshall County Road 15/Polk County Road 20 through Sherack and Polk County Road 19 to Euclid. It is expected to last until mid-July, weather permitting.
The remaining portion of the project will be done under traffic and will be complete in early August. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for workers along the highway right of way.
Knife River Materials is the contractor for the $4.6 million project. The work will ensure a smoother and safer roadway with better drainage for motorists in the region.
MnDOT urges motorists to follow these recommendations in work zones: stay alert; watch for signs, equipment and workers; minimize distractions, such as using cell phones, eating or drinking; avoid tailgating; follow posted speed limits and directional signs; and stay in one lane while driving through the work zone.
