TH 11 E Bike Trail Kiosks

Thank you to all that have reached out recently regarding the TH 11 E Bike Trail Kiosks. Although this project has taken an extend period of time, the Highway Department can report that there has been substantial progress made.  All information and final revisions have been sent to the graphic design company.  It is anticipated that they should be finishing the final design shortly.  At at that point the sign overlays will be manufactured for all the kiosks.  Mounting of the sign information will be dependent on weather conditions, but is expected to be complete soon.  Thank you for your patience while this project nears completion.  The Highway Department asks that moving forward citizens refrain from placing flyers or any other propaganda at these locations.  For additional questions, please contact the Koochiching County Highway Department.
