Division Street Construction Project


Road construction will begin on the Division Roundabouts.

The High School and Becida intersections will be closed to ALL traffic in ALL directions. Full closure is needed to expedite construction before school starts again in September. Please plan to use the detour or alternate routes.  The High School, residents and businesses along Division can be accessed thru the Adams intersection.

The contractor plans to start with removing the pavement and then will proceed to work on the High School and Adams roundabouts.

Beltrami County Highway Department urges motorists to use caution when traveling in and around all work zones.

For more information regarding this construction, please contact the Beltrami County Highway Department at 218-333-8173.
