Angry Fires up north

Even here in mid central Minnesota - we are "suffering" from smoke from the fires up in Saskatchewan (at least that is what the news guys say)

Greetings,

I provided an update on my 502 experience on this thread: dated 06 July. I wouldn't expect much of a change since that date. You will likely encounter more newly paved road for the northern stretch of road construction. You may find more work started on the southern stretch of road work.

All in all, it won't be a major headache. Do be mindful of the short stretches of gravel where culverts were installed/replaced.

Safe travels...

I did see that. Just getting antsy, I guess. When I was through there a month ago, they were doing culvert replacement and about 70% of them were pretty smooth for gravel. Unfortunately, the other 30% must have been filled in by day laborers....

Thanks for the update, and for the safe travel wishes!

Drove north on the 502 today. 10 miles or so stretch of gravel plus lots of culvert work. Pay attention to the bump signs, most aren't terrible but there are a few that could bend an axel at highway speeds.

Just came down 502,...if heading north, you should see the gravel road start right around 115 kilometers heading north, then it is back to pavement after roughly 11 kilometers. Plenty of patch work before you get to the gravel. No delay for us.
(I was heading south, but I told it as if people are heading north)

Just curious. How much longer is it to get to Vermillion Bay using 71? Is 71 in good shape?
