Motorists will encounter minor traffic delays on state Highway 1 and Highway 89 at the Sandy River Bridge on the southwestern shore of Lower Red Lake as crews continue to build a new bridge.

Traffic is restricted to one lane with speed reduced to 15 mph from Aug. 4-31 from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and may include Sundays. Motorists are warned to slow down and follow flagger instructions.

A full detour route is planned for early September and will be announced at a later date.

When complete, the new bridge will be wider for safer passage.
