About the study

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is evaluating the transportation needs of State Highway 71 north of Bemidji. The primary needs MnDOT has identified are the age/condition of the pavement and safety concerns along the corridor.

Given the limited amount of funding allotted in each year, other transportation needs in northwestern Minnesota and time needed to evaluate and design a project, MnDOT is planning this project for 2022.
