A passing grade: MnDOT overpass project ahead of schedule; bridge over U.S. Highway 2 nearly finished


BEMIDJI -- Despite having to deal with higher amounts of traffic with school back in session, the Minnesota Department of Transportation's overpass project over U.S. Highway 2 is expected to be completed ahead of schedule.

"It's been right on schedule," said project engineer Troy Strassburg. "We have a completion date of Oct. 17, but I suspect they could be finishing two weeks ahead. There haven't been any issues from traffic, either. It's been working really well with people using the detour."

The road project just west of Bemidji includes creating an overpass bridge to allow traffic on Minnesota Highway 89 to better easily merge onto Highway 2.
