Rumble stripes projects in southern Minnesota set for June and July
MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists may encounter brief delays as crews install rumble stripes on area highways in June and July.
The following highways in LeSueur, Nicollet and Sibley counties will be marked with centerline and edge line rumble stripes beginning June 6:
- Hwy 13 - Montgomery to New Prague
- Hwy 19 - Winthrop to Gaylord
- Hwy 60 - Hwy14 to Waterville, except Madison Lake and Elysian
- Hwy 99 – St. Peter to Hwy 13, except Cleveland and Le Center
The following highways in Blue Earth, Brown, Cottonwood and Nobles counties will be marked with centerline and edge line rumble stripes beginning July 18:
- Hwy 15 - Three locations from New Ulm to the Nicollet/Sibley county line
- Hwy 59 - Worthington to the Nobles/Murray county line
- Hwy 68 - Hwy 15 to near Mankato
- Hwy 71 - Hwy 30 to Sanborn
Flagging operations will control traffic on two-lane highways to guide motorists through the work zones.
MnDOT places rumble stripes on highways centerlines and edgelines as a safety and cost-saving measure. They warn motorists who leave the traveled lane, which prevents road-departure crashes. The paint is much more visible in rainy and wet conditions, and the lifespan of the painted markings extends due to reduced damage from snowplows.
Motorists should drive with extreme caution through the work zones and watch for workers and equipment.
