10 different projects taking place in TRF and the surrounding area


Here’s what’s happening now:

MnDOT, Pennington County and Red Lake Watershed have a combined total of 10 construction projects in the Thief River Falls area this summer. Many projects are well underway and MnDOT reminds motorists to use caution and follow signs in construction zones. Updates on each project, as well as project websites are listed below.

Hwy 1- Construct three roundabouts, frontage road and multi-use trail between Hwy 59 and Kinney Ave

Hwy 1- Replace culvert west of the intersection with Hwy 59

Hwy 1- Resurface between Hwy 219 and Pennington CR 18 east of Thief River Falls

Hwy 32- Construct roundabout at the intersection with Pennington CR 8 and CR 16

Hwy 32- Replace culvert south of Pennington CR 7

Hwy 32- Resurface between Thief River Falls and St. Hilaire

Hwy 32- Pedestrian improvements in St. Hilaire

Pennington CR 8/Mark Blvd- Connect road with the construction of a new bridge over the Red Lake River

Pennington CR 8/Mark Blvd- Construct roundabout at Pennington Ave S/Pennington CR 17 near Challenger Elementary

Westside Flood Damage Reduction Project– Construct a diversion channel and drainage infrastructure on the west side of Thief River Falls. Underground storm sewer will be installed along Barzen Ave and Greenwood St, along with a new sanitary sewer.

The projects will not all begin at once. MnDOT and its partners have worked together to combine and stage detours to lessen the overall impact on motorists.

Following guidance from state and federal health officials, and to prevent further spread of COVID-19, crews will maintain social distancing practices while working.
