Hwy 4 project in Meeker County starts May 6

WILLMAR, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) will begin a pavement project on Highway 4 in Meeker County starting Monday, May 6, 2019.

The project includes resurfacing twelve miles of Highway 4 from the east junction of Highway 12 to Highway 55.

No detour is required for this project, however, flagging operations will be in place during construction. Motorists should plan for short delays.

Benefits of the project include a smoother road surface and extended pavement life. The project is estimated to cost $1.5 million and to be complete by mid-June. Knife River is the contractor on the project.

For more information visit the project webpage at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d8/projects/hwy4/.            

MnDOT asks motorists to slow down and pay attention while driving through work zones. Remember, orange cones, no phones. Motorists who speed through a work zone or who disobey work zone flaggers face a $300 fine.
