Paving has begun on Highway 34 between Park Rapids and the Dorset corner and with minor exceptions, the resurfacing and turn lanes should be done by the July 1 deadline.


There may be some items such as striping that won't get finished, said DOT project supervisor Larry Randall.

But it's a quick turnaround for the Alexandria contractor who one week ago was expressing doubt his company could meet the deadline.
