BEMIDJI, Minn. – Motorists on Highway 2 in East Grand Forks will experience temporary lane closures on the Kennedy Bridge as crews conduct previously scheduled inspections Oct. 10-14.

Weather permitting, traffic will be reduced to a single lane each day during regular business hours. Drivers are urged to slow down, eliminate distractions and obey all signs.

A two-year project to reconstruct the bridge deck is scheduled to begin next spring. The redesign features a multi-use lane for bicycles and pedestrians.
