Portion of Highway 2 collapses
A portion of U.S. Highway 2 collapsed Tuesday afternoon, prompting an emergency detour through Bemidji.
The collapse occurred during drilling for Enbridge Energy Corp.'s Alberta Clipper oil pipeline.
Lorraine Grymala, community affairs manager for Enbridge, said workers were boring a 36-inch pipeline under Highway 2 and everything was going as expected until a portion of the roadway in the center of the highway caved in.
