Business Highway 2 in East Grand Forks, between Fifth Avenue NE and County Road 17, will be closed from Monday, Oct. 29 through Friday, Nov. 2, the Minnesota Department of Transportation and Polk County Sheriff’s Office report, as railroad crews complete a project to replace the concrete surface at the crossing.

    Traffic will be detoured to Fifth Avenue NE and Highway 2.

    Local access to American Crystal Sugar will be maintained for sugar beet trucks. Due to the traffic flow changes, MnDOT  urges motorists to watch for additional traffic from beet harvest, always drive with caution, and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
