Highway 28 resurfacing west of Sauk Centre begins tomorrow
Motorists and residents on Highway 28 west of Sauk Centre will encounter intermittent lane closures, flaggers, pilot cars and possible delays between Highway 71 and Westport beginning Monday, April 29.
The lane closures will occur from sunrise to sunset Mondays through Saturdays.
Different segments of the road will close each day. Flaggers will allow one-way, alternating traffic through the work zone each day. Drivers must obey the flagger, be prepared to stop and follow the pilot car as they navigate the daily work zone.
Motorists entering from driveways or roads that intersect Highway 28 within a work zone must wait for the pilot car to pass, then follow it through the daily work zone.

The lane closures are needed as crews resurface, replace or repair guardrail and improve drainage.
The project and lane closures are scheduled to be completed by June 7, 2013.
When the project is complete, it will result in smoother ride and improved safety along nine miles of Highway 28, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
