Road preservation project on Hwy 29 between Wadena and Hwy 210 to take place this week

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Motorists can expect lane closures and delays on Hwy 29 between Wadena and Hwy 210 this week, as crews complete a preventative maintenance sealcoat project that will extend the life of the pavement surface.

The project will last approximately three days and could start as early as Tuesday, May 22. During this work a pilot car and flaggers will control traffic, and motorists should plan for daily lane closures in the area where crews are working. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas.

Once the sealcoat portion of the project is complete crews will return a couple of weeks later to paint road striping. That work will be done under traffic.

MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, and reminds them to slow down in the work zone and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
