Orange barrels on a highway

Temporary lane closure on Kennedy Bridge Mar. 10

Eastbound lane closed for Bridge Inspection

BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists entering Minnesota on Highway 2 in East Grand Forks will experience a temporary lane closure on the southern eastbound lane of the Kennedy Bridge on Mar. 10, weather permitting.

The closure allows MnDOT bridge crews to perform an inspection in anticipation of a two-year rehabilitation project scheduled to begin this fall. That project includes a redesign of the bridge deck to add a multi-use lane for bicycles and pedestrians.

The inspection will begin after 8 a.m. and delays should be minimal. Drivers are urged to slow down, eliminate distractions and obey all signs.
