What's happening now

Highway 1 east of Thief River Falls begins resurface project August 17
Motorists on Highway 1 east of Thief River Falls will experience a detour as construction begins. Motorists will detour utilizing Pennington County Roads 18, 44, 2, 12 and Highway 219.

The project includes resurfacing approximately 16 miles between Pennington County Road 18 and Highway 219. Crews will also replace 80 entrance pipes along the highway. The project will result in improved drainage, safer slopes and a safer, longer lasting roadway.

RJ Zavoral & Sons, Inc. is the contractor for the project, which is expected to last through mid-October, weather permitting. Visit the project website to sign up for email updates and to view a detour map www.mndot.gov/d2/projects/2020/hwy1-resurface.
