The site of the Crookston Sixth Street slide along the Red Lake River and below
Highway 2 is humming with activity as semi trucks are hauling in machine parts
for a huge crane to make the necessary repairs. Paul Konickson, project engineer
for the Minnesota Department of Transportation said work will pick up next week.
“Part of the tracks are here and more will be coming in the next few days from
California,” said Konickson. “They will put the machine together and get it
operational, and a spot for the slurry and the weather needs to hold for about
the next four weeks so things don’t freeze up.”
The dirt taken out is in a temporary area at the former Elk River property and
Red Lake Builders will be disposing of the dirt.
“It is a wait and see next week to see what place they are digging and will go
back on the site to be a flatter one to four slope,” said Konickson. The project
should wrap up for the winter by the end of November. The project will not be
finished until next spring.
