MnDOT to Conduct Drilling Along Several Downtown Moorhead Streets

(Moorhead, MN) -- The Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin geotechnical exploration and drilling along 11th Street, Center Avenue, Main Avenue and 1st Avenue in Moorhead this month.

The work will take place on public rights of way and several adjacent private properties. Motorists can expect daily lane closures as crews begin drilling and should expect congestion in the area. 

This required work is part of the project development process for the 11th Street railroad grade separation project. Crews will be collecting bore samples to test soil conditions and structure for future construction.

MnDOT urges motorists to slow down in work zones and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
