Email News Alerts

Bid openings for the Highway 34 reconstruction project between Park Rapids and Akeley have been postponed.

Because of some amendments to the contract that altered some specifications, project manager Darren Laesch said the new bid opening is May 6.


That's when the public will learn how the project will be completed. Department of Transportation officials have left the details to the successful bidder, but tentative project dates are May 23 to Sept. 2.
