Motorists on Highway 1 in Thief River Falls will continue to use the detour of First Street West while construction continues for three roundabouts between Highway 59 and Kinney Avenue.
Access to Sixth Street will be closed starting Monday July 27 to allow for pavement removal and structure placement up to Westside Motors. Businesses located on the north Frontage Road will have access from Ruby Avenue.
Work in Phase 1 continues on Highway 1 between Kinney Avenue and East Ruby Avenue, as crews construct a frontage road as well as roundabouts at Brooks Avenue and Barzen Avenue. Motorists will detour onto First Street West.
When complete, crews will begin Phase 2 with the construction of a roundabout at the intersection of Highways 1 and 59. The Phase 2 detour follows Pennington County Road 31 and County Road 14.
RJ Zavoral & Sons, Inc is the contractor for the project, which is expected to last through early October, weather permitting. Visit the project website to sign up for email updates and to view an interactive detour map www.mndot.gov/d2/projects/2020/hwy1-roundabouts.
