MN/DOT PAINT STRIPING CREWS WILL BE WORKING IN BEMIDJI AND ROSEAU THIS WEEK, MOTORISTS CAUTIONED TO SLOW DOWN

Bemidji, Mn. C The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) would like to alert motorists that it's paint striping crews are scheduled to be working in Bemidji and Roseau this week. This schedule includes T.H. 197 through the city of Bemidji.

The paint striping operation is slow moving and motorists are cautioned to slow down when approaching these areas and pass with care. Brad Knutson, MnDOT Project Supervisor advises motorists to, "avoid crossing over freshly painted areas to minimize the potential of getting paint on your car." Knutson reported that Mn/DOT is using an epoxy paint which is more durable, expected to last longer, and takes longer to dry than the previously used latex paint which had a water base.

Mn/DOT would also like to advise the public that these schedules are contingent upon the weather and are adjusted as needed. Please remember, when you "See Orange", slow down, we're in the work zone together.

See ORANGE.

We’re in the WORK ZONE Together
