Minn.Bright green mile marker signage placed inside the
center medians of two major Twin Cities metro area freeway corridors
have been erected to help motorists pinpoint their exact location
when seeking help following a crash, a breakdown or other incident.
new mile markers can be found on I-35W from 46th Street to Industrial
Blvd. and on Highway 65 from I-35W north of Lake St. into downtown
mile markers make it easier for motorists to report incident locations
in areas where accurate identification has been difficult,"
said Jim Kranig, Assistant State Traffic Engineer and Director
of the RTMC.
incident removal from freeways means fewer crash-related delays
and fewer secondary incidents."
new mile markers display the roadway shield, direction of travel
and mile point to one-tenth of a mile. In case of an incident,
motorists are advised to locate the nearest mile-marker, make
sure they are in a safe position and dial 911. Motorists must
provide 911 operators with location, their wireless phone number
and the nature of the incident.
