Highway 22 Mapleton to Wells scheduled for maintenance work

MANKATO, Minn. — Motorists are advised to expect delays on Highway 22 between Mapleton and Wells beginning Wednesday, August 28, weather permitting, as crews apply a seal coat.

Highway 22 traffic from Township Road 49 near Mapleton to Thurman Street in Wells should anticipate lane closures during operations. Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car. Motorists should slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.

The seal coat is a preventative maintenance measure that provides a protective layer, reducing deterioration due to sun and moisture. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas.

The sealcoating is expected to be completed by sometime during the next week – or about five working days. Then, crews will return a couple of weeks later to paint final striping, which will be done under traffic.
