Temporary Hwy 65 stop sign in place after crash damages signal pole in Albert Lea

ALBERT LEA, Minn. – A temporary stop sign has been placed in Albert Lea at Highway 65 and Garfield Avenue until the Minnesota Department of Transportation can replace equipment that was damaged by a vehicle crash.

A traffic signal pole was damaged recently by a crash, so MnDOT crews have removed the damaged equipment and placed a stop sign until new equipment can be installed. The intersection of Hwy 65 (also known as East Main Street) and Garfield Avenue will be controlled temporarily by stop signs.

MnDOT expects to obtain the necessary equipment next week and a temporary signal will be installed Thursday, July 6.
