Hwy 2, Hwy 65 Swan River Roundabout project

Itasca County

Traffic impacts

From August 23 through 31, motorists can expect shoulder closures on Highway 2 between Wawina and Highway 200 and near the intersection of Highway 65 for culvert cleaning and repairs.

Milling and paving on Highway 2 from Wawina to Highway 200 will start on September 6 and continue until September 23. Motorists should expect single lane traffic with flaggers and a pilot car during work operations.

Roundabout construction at the intersection of Hwy 2 and Hwy 65 in 2024 will require a detour of Hwy 65.
