The ceremony will involve U.S. Rep. Collin Peterson and representatives from the Federal Highway Administration, Todd County and City of Staples.

The North/South Corridor with Railroad Overpass Project will construct a two-lane north/south collector (urban and rural) roadway and a bridge over the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad and U.S. Highway 10 in Staples. The bridge and roadway will incorporate a 10-foot pedestrian/bicycle trail for the entire length of the project. The Overpass Project received a $7.65 million federal TIGER II grant.

Construction began Monday and will continue through November.
