The Highway 34 resurfacing project from Park Rapids to Akeley is near completion, and crews plan to remove the detour on Sept. 1. The project is still on target to be complete by mid-September.


Shoulder work is underway and paving is near completion. Rumble strips and striping installation is scheduled for next week, weather permitting. Motorists should continue with caution in the work zone once the detour is removed as workers and equipment will still be in the area finishing miscellaneous work.

Weekly public information meetings about the project will no longer take place. Citizens who have questions related to the project can direct them to Project Supervisor Larry Randall at 218-755-6519 or Karen Bedeau at 218-755-6552.
