MnDOT to host Virtual Coffee and Conversation April 29 for Hwy 200 project near Walker 

BEMIDJI, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will host a virtual Coffee and Conversation event on April 29 to discuss the future Highway 200 project in 2021. Join us from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m. as members of the project team discuss the project, answer questions, and take comments.

MnDOT plans to resurface the 15 mile stretch of Highway 200 between Highway 371 and Highway 84. The project includes shoulder widening and the replacement of two box culverts at Bag Creek and Cedar Creek. Construction is scheduled to begin mid-May. 

Highway 200 will be open to through traffic for most of the project. There will be a short-term detour during the box culvert installation portion of the project. Details on the project, including detour information is available on the project website.

Anderson Brothers is the prime contractor on the $10.6 million dollar project. All work is scheduled to be completed by the end of September, weather permitting.

MnDOT invites and encourages participation by all. We believe everyone should have an equal opportunity to enjoy the programs, services and activities we provide. If you feel you need a reasonable accommodation in order to fully participate in this event, such as an ASL or spoken language interpreter, or need documents in an alternate format, such as braille or large print, please contact: Janet Miller at 651-366-4720 or e-mail ADArequest.dot@state.mn.us as soon as possible, but no later than 48 hours before the scheduled event.
