Orange barrels on a highway

Hwy 22 north of Gaylord set for seal coating July 11

Watch for pilot cars and flaggers

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised to pay attention and expect brief delays as Highway 22 from Gaylord to Highway 212 is scheduled for work the week of July 11, weather permitting.

Motorists can expect to encounter flaggers and a pilot car beginning July 11.  The project is expected to take about one week.

The work primarily consists of seal coating to prevent water from getting under the surface and damaging the pavement.

Minnesota’s highway system is getting older and as it ages, it needs more work to keep it in good shape.  These projects are preventative maintenance on newer pavements to keep them in good condition longer.
