Expect Lane Closures on Area Highways 11 Jul 16

Motorists are advised to be on the watch today for MnDOT road preservation projects on Highways 32, 72, 92 and 102 in the listening area.

The State Department of Transportation says drivers can expect lane closures and delays as crews begin preventive maintenance seal coating projects extending the life of the highway surface.

The highway segments scheduled for the preventative maintenance include:    

·         Highway 32 – Fertile to Highway 200 (15 miles)

·         Highway 102 – Fertile to Crookston (19 miles)

·         Highway 92 – Gonvick to Trail (8 miles)

·         Highway 92 – Bagley to mile post 53 (2 miles)

·         Highway 72 – Waskish to mile post 48 (12 miles)

During the work, a pilot car and flag bearers will control traffic, and motorists should plan for daily lane closures  and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas. The work zone speed limit is 40 mph. Work is expected to be complete by the beginning of August, weather permitting.
