Traffic along Adams Avenue, north of the intersection with Division Street, will be shifted to the east but will remain open to two-way traffic. A temporary closure of the intersection of Division Street and Adams Avenue will take place during construction of Phase 2 to install water main across the intersection, a notice of the intersection closure will be given prior to construction. All High School entrances will remain open for the duration of the project.

The City of Bemidji and ISD #31 along with Karvakko and Reierson Construction Inc. will begin construction on Phase 1 of the Division Street Utility Extension Project. The project will begin on Tuesday June 6th, 2017.

This project will involve the removal and replacement of bituminous pavement, aggregate material, concrete curb & gutter, and turf establishment. During construction of Phase 1, Division Street, between Adams Avenue and US HWY 2, will be closed and traffic will be detoured (see the attached exhibit drawing for detour routes).

Residents should be able to access their driveways during most of the construction, although there will be short time periods where this will not be possible. The project inspectors and the contractor will try to insure that driveways are accessible in the morning and by the end of the day and will be in contact with the residents impacted by these issues. If you have any issues or problems getting into your driveway please do not hesitate to call one of the project inspectors/foreman listed below.
