Lane closures on Hwy 4 south of Paynesville begin Aug. 9
Motorists will encounter lane closures on Highway 4 south of Paynesville as crews begin a bridge joint repair project on Aug. 9. The highway will be reduced to one lane in each direction during the project.
Signing will direct motorists to stop and take turns where the lanes go from two to one lane. The lane closures will remain in place until the work is completed on Aug. 30, weather permitting.
The routine repair project helps preserve the structural integrity of the bridge and will provide a smoother ride for the traveling public.
Motorists are asked to slow down, drive with caution through the area and watch for crews working. For updated statewide traffic, construction, weather and travel information visit www.511mn.org
