BEMIDJI — Motorists traveling through Cass Lake on Highway 371 can expect a local traffic detour beginning July 22.
Crews continue to make progress on the work and plan to move into Phase 2 of the project (weather permitting) Motorists will detour onto Grant Utley Ave. NW and Railroad Street. Truck traffic will continue to use the truck detour.
The project will reconstruct Highway 371 in Cass Lake between Highway 2 and the railroad crossing, and resurface Highway 2 near the intersection with Highway 371. It includes storm sewer replacement, construction of a multi-use trail, sidewalks, curb and gutter, highway lighting and updated traffic signals.
