One of the first federal economic stimulus projects to begin

BAXTER, Minn.- Motorists may experience weekday lane closures when a $6.8 million resurfacing project on Highway 10 begins May 4, the Minnesota Department of Transportation announced today.

Federal economic stimulus projectThe project, from one mile east of Wadena to just west of the city limits of Staples, is one of nearly 100 Minnesota road and bridge projects that will be funded with $502 million in federal economic stimulus dollars.

In addition to resurfacing this portion of the roadway, crews will extend turn lanes and install rumble strips. Shoulder rumble strips will be installed along the corridor from Staples to Motley.

Safety and access management will be improved by the removal of median access points along the corridor in compliance with statewide access management guidelines.

Drivers are reminded reduce their speed and be alert for trucks hauling materials in the work zone.

Knife River Corporation is the prime contractor for this resurfacing project, funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act signed into law Feb. 17, 2009.

All work is to be completed by mid-July, weather permitting.
