Resurfacing of Hwy 10 in Otter Tail, Wadena counties begins Sept. 19
BAXTER, Minn. — Motorists traveling on Hwy 10 will encounter lane closures, pilot cars and flaggers directing traffic from just east of Oink Joint Road to the Wadena/Otter Tail county line beginning Monday, Sept. 19, as crews resurface the road and make pedestrian ramp improvements.
Anderson Bros Construction of Brainerd, Minn., is the prime contractor for the $1.5 million roadway improvement project.
The project is scheduled to be completed by early October, weather permitting.
During construction and road maintenance work, the Minnesota Department of Transportation urges drivers to:
- Check www.511mn.org or call 511 for up-to-date information about traffic and road conditions.
- Watch for construction crews and equipment in the work zone.
- Follow posted speed limits; fines double in work zones.
- Plan ahead and expect delays, especially during peak travel times.
- Stay alert; expect the unexpected.
Traveling safely through the work zone
Pilot Car Safety
This construction project will be using a signed car in rural areas to
lead traffic through the construction work area at a safe
speed. This car is called a pilot car. A PILOT CAR
FOLLOW ME sign will be displayed on the rear of this
There will be only one lane of traffic open during this
construction project. A flagger will release traffic to
follow the pilot car to the other end of construction where
a second flagger will be holding traffic from the opposing
lane. Traffic will only be released to a pilot car going
in the same direction.
If you are entering the roadway where crews are working
by a driveway or intersection, you must wait for the pilot
car and vehicles following to pass you. Then you must travel
in the same direction as the pilot car.
Do not travel in the opposite direction of the pilot car and the vehicles following it.
