A recent post saif construction on 502 would resum this spring. Does anyone know if thats started yet? I'm going toEagle lake, just west of Dryden on the 18th for a week. Don't want to travel an extra 75 miles but if under construction waits could run into the "hours" on this opening weekend.

As of last weekend there was know constuction. If you take it easy , it's a great trip. My father in law saw a moose and a sow bear and her cub . Good luck fishing and enjoy your trip.

Thanks for the information - we'll hope they don't get started this week. Your right though, it is a beautiful trip and if we do have to wait an hour or two thats no big deal after driving from Iowa. I can't wait!

Highway 502 from the turnoff on highway 11 going north to the turn off just before you go into Dryden is approximately 120 kilometers (75 miles) long. A reasonable amount of time to cover 502 would be about two hours.
Good luck on your trip and good luck fishing.
