While the work is going on the right lane of eastbound Highway 23/Division Street has been reduced to one lane.  You might want to avoid that area for the rest of the week because there have been significant backups with vehicles heading east.

Also, 4th Avenue South just to the east of the building has also been closed while the demolition work is going on.

Later this year construction will begin on a brand new two-story Bremer Bank building will begin.
