Road closures are becoming a headache for many drivers in the Bemidji area. And now more intersections, this time on the east side of Lake Bemidji, will be shut down.
The intersections of St. Onge Drive and Lake Avenue and Chippewa Drive and Lake Avenue will be closed beginning today (Thursday). Drivers on St. Onge Drive, including emergency vehicles will have to access the road from the north, off of Power Dam Road. The intersections are scheduled to reopen within 72 hours, provided the weather allows it.
