Rural intersection overhead lighting installation begins April 30

 

Sixteen intersections in nine central Minnesota counties

 

 

BAXTER, Minn. — Motorists should plan for minor traffic delays and shoulder closures at rural highway intersections in nine central Minnesota counties beginning Monday, April 30, as crews install overhead lighting.

 

All intersections are scheduled to be complete by June 22, weather permitting.

 

Design Electric Inc. is the prime contractor for the $180,000 project, which includes 16 intersections at:


Cass County


Stearns County


Todd County


Morrison County

Crow Wing County


Aitkin County


Mille Lacs County


Kanabec County


Pine County

 

Lighting rural intersections at night improves safety by helping motorists see they are approaching an intersection, according to MnDOT.

 

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
