Hwy 200 bridge completion delayed until end of October

DETROIT LAKES, Minn.— Due to material delays, the Twin Lakes Creek bridge on Hwy 200 will remain closed until the end of October. Work on the bridge replacement continues and is ongoing as materials arrive.

As a reminder, Hwy 200 is closed between Mahnomen and Roy Lake for road construction. Thru-traffic is being detoured to Hwy 59, Hwy 113 and County Road 39. For residents and other local traffic who have a destination on Hwy 200 within the work zone, the roadway is impassable at the Twin Lakes Creek bridge. Take the detour or find an alternate route around the bridge.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation knows that schedule changes during construction can be frustrating, and apologizes for any inconveniences caused by the extended bridge closure.  

Residents/local traffic should also be aware of additional lane closures and delays near Beatty Creek and Roy Lake, starting the week of Sept. 6. Crews will be replacing the culvert at Beatty Creek and completing additional pavement work near Roy Lake. MnDOT reminds motorists to slow down, drive with caution through the work zone and obey flaggers.

The overall project includes shoulder widening, pavement repairs, bridge and culvert replacements, turn lanes, and other safety and pedestrian accessibility improvements. Throughout the duration of construction, driveway access is being maintained.
