Crews in the midst of interchange project
Anyone who's driven south of Perham in the last week or so has probably noticed a lot of truck traffic coming in and out of the city's wastewater treatment facility.
These trucks are loading and hauling fill materials from the facility over to where the new interchange is being built, just west of town at the intersection of U.S. Highway 10 and County State Aid Highway 34.
The accompanying drawing shows what the interchange project will look like when finished. The road running west-east is Highway 10; cutting through that at an angle is Highway 34.
Crews are building new eastbound and westbound exit and entrance ramps to connect the two highways, and will also be resurfacing some of the surrounding roadways.
Construction of shoulders, turn lanes, curbs and gutters, and a bicycle and pedestrian trail is also planned.
Work is scheduled to be complete in late September.
