Road preservation project in west central Minnesota begins May 20

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. – Motorists can expect brief delays on three highways in west central Minnesota beginning Wednesday, May 20, as crews complete a seal coating project.

The project will extend the life of the pavement surface.

The highways included in this project include:
·         Highway 55 from Glenwood to the west Douglas County line near Hoffman
·         Highway 9 from Interstate 94 to Highway 10
·         Highway 75 from Highway 12 at Ortonville to Graceville

During this work, a pilot car and flaggers will control traffic, and motorists should plan for daily lane closures in the area where crews are working. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas.

Crews will work during daylight hours.

The work is expected to be done by May 29, weather permitting.

This project helps ensure MnDOT’s transportation system will continue to serve the state for many years.
