BEMIDJI — The city of Bemidji and Northern Paving, Inc. will begin construction on Ridgeway Avenue NW, from Paul Bunyan Drive to 30th Street, on Tuesday, July 5.

The construction, a part of the 2022 Street Renewal Project, is scheduled to be completed by September, if weather permits.

Normal working hours for the project will be from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday. Work on Saturdays is also possible.

The majority of the area will remain passable for residents living inside the area throughout the time frame, but the roads will be closed to thru traffic which will be detoured onto adjacent streets.

Questions about the project can be directed to the Bemidji Engineering Department at (218) 333-1850.

Our newsroom sometimes reports stories under the byline "Pioneer Staff Report." This byline is used when reporters rewrite basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as an email or press release that requires little or no reporting.

Other times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
