MNDOT will conduct aerial photos of Highway 2 in Fosston
The Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin aerial mapping of northwest Minnesota. The two points pictured are along Route 2. One is near Crookston while the other is in Fosston.
At the start of this process, MNDOT asks landowners not to disturb the targets set up for aerial photography. These targets installed near or on the properties of the owners will be contacted directly. The project should start in mid-May, weather permitting.
Photos taken during aerial surveys will respond to clear observations made. Therefore, it should be done after the leaves fall and before it snows. As a reference point for the photographer, the team will place an “X” on the ground at the location. A white “X” will be placed on paved roads. Plastic or fabric markings will be placed on unpaved or gravel surfaces.
These images will be used to create a record of existing infrastructure and landscape for future highway design plans. If a target needs to be moved, MNDOT asks landowners to contact the District 2 Survey Office. They can call (218) 755-6509 to submit concerns or inquiries.
