Highway 13 through Waseca scheduled for maintenance work

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists are advised to expect delays on Highway 13 in Waseca beginning Thursday, August 29, weather permitting, as crews apply a seal coat.

Highway 13 traffic from Highway 14 to the Waseca High School should anticipate lane closures during operations. Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car. Motorists should slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.

The seal coat is a preventative maintenance measure that provides a protective layer, reducing deterioration due to sun and moisture. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas.

The sealcoating is expected to be completed early next week. Then, crews will return a couple of weeks later to paint final striping, which will be done under traffic.
