The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced that construction on Highway 72 in Baudette is set to begin in early June.

The $6.5 million project will be constructed between 1st Avenue and the Canadian border. Motorists traveling to and from the border crossing will utilize the signed detour.

The project will include grading, curb and gutter, storm sewer, bituminous surfacing, ADA improvement, and city utilities on Highway 72 in Baudette. Benefits of the project include a safer road, improved drainage, and a smoother and longer lasting driving surface.

The project is expected to be complete in late August, weather permitting.
