Bridge inspections underway
BEMIDJI -- Motorists along U.S. Highways 2 and 71 in the Bemidji area should expect some daytime lane closures this week as crews inspect bridges along the Bemidji bypass, officials said.
Drivers should slow down to 55 mph in work zones, Minnesota Department of Transportation officials said in a press release. Crews inspect bridges every two years, using specialized equipment to look for cracks and other damage issues.
