Workzone at night

Routine maintenance scheduled for local roadways

BAXTER, Minn. -- Motorists will encounter lane and parking restrictions beginning Monday, May 17, while crews perform routine maintenance on several area roads. Most work will take two to three days.

Crews will apply seal coating on:

  • Highway 65 north of Cambridge, in Isanti and Kanabec counties.
  • Highway 107 from Braham to Highway 65 to the Isanti/Kanabec County Line in Isanti County.
  • Highway 25 from Becker Highway 10 to Highway 95, five miles south of Foley in Benton and Sherburne counties. Work Complete
  • Highway 55 from Kimball, just west of Highway 15, to Annandale, just west of County Highway 5 in Stearns and Wright counties. Work Complete
  • Highway 12 from just east of the Wright/Hennepin County Line and the city of Delano to just west of Independence in Hennepin County. Work Complete

Once the seal coat work is completed, crews will return in approximately two weeks to fog seal the bituminous roadway and shoulders. This work will require two to four days at each location.

Permanent pavement markings will be done in late June or early July.

This work is considered a moving operation and will cause traffic delays in the areas where crews are working. Motorists will be directed through the work zone by flaggers and pilot cars.

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 crew 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.
  • Remember text messaging while driving is illegal.
  • Don't eat or drink while driving.
