New signs to be installed on U.S. Highway 2

Motorists will encounter minor traffic delays with intermittent lane closures when a project to replace damaged and worn signs at five locations on U.S. Highway 2 in northwest Minnesota begins Monday, July 6.

Signs will be replaced at three rest areas including Fisher Rest Area west of Crookston; Oak Lake Rest Area near Highway 59 and Cass Lake Rest Area in Cass Lake.

In addition, highway signs will also be replaced at the Erskine interchange on U.S. Highway 2 and Highway 59 and at the junction of U.S. Highway 2 and Highway 32 at Marcoux Corner.

The project is one of nearly 100 Minnesota road and bridge projects that are funded with federal economic stimulus dollars through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act that was signed into law on Feb. 17, 2009.

The sign replacement project is expected to be complete by Aug. 28, weather permitting.
