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:

 

The following highways in Blue Earth, Brown, Cottonwood and Nobles counties will be marked with centerline and edge line rumble stripes beginning July 18:

 

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.
