Temporary traffic signal in use on Hwy 63 north of Zumbro Falls during guardrail work

ZUMBRO FALLS, Minn. – Motorists on Hwy 63 will encounter short delays north of Zumbro Falls during daytime hours while crews relocate guardrail, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

A temporary traffic signal will stop traffic briefly while traffic in the opposite direction travels through the work zone in an open lane. Once that traffic is through, traffic that was waiting will proceed while the other direction waits.

Work will take place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day and should wrap up by Friday, Nov. 6.

Crews continue to follow the guidance of state and federal health officials to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges travelers to always drive with caution, and reminds everyone to:

  • Slow down when approaching every work zone, then navigate through with care and caution.
  • Stay alert; work zones constantly change.
  • Watch for workers and slow moving equipment.
  • Obey posted speed limits. Fine for a violation in a work zone is $300.
  • Minimize distractions behind the wheel.
  • Be patient; expect delays, especially during peak travel times.
