MnDOT conducts aerial photography in northern Minnesota


locations in northern Minnesota starting in April. This aerial survey process relies on clear observations, and must be conducted after the snow has melted and before the trees leaf out, a release said. To begin the process, crews place an “X” on the ground as a reference point for the aerial photographer. Work, depending on weather, will begin in April in the following locations:

• Highway 2 and Highway 71 in Bemidji

• Highway 1 in Red Lake

• Highway 2 in East Grand Forks

• Highway 75 in Hallock

The mapping will create a record of existing infrastructure and landscape along MnDOT right of way for transportation planning and operations, the release said. The wood panel targets are temporary and will be removed when the photography is completed. MnDOT requests that landowners not remove or disturb the targets until the photography is completed. If a target must be moved, contact MnDOT District 2 survey staff at (218) 755-6533 or by email at
