BAXTER, Minn. - The microsurfacing project on Highway 10 through the city of Wadena has been delayed due to equipment problems on the job site.
Motorists will travel on the milled surface until it can be paved, starting early next week. Paving should be completed within two days, weather permitting.
During paving operations traffic will shift on to one lane through the work zone, directed by flaggers. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for flaggers, heavy moving equipment and loose gravel on the roadway surface.
Crews will return to the project in late September to place the permanent striping, once the pavement has had time to cure.
Astech Corp. of St. Joseph is the prime contractor for the $143,000 road preservation project, which will be completed the week of Sept. 14, weather permitting.
