Sections of Highway 23 reduced to single lane beginning June 28



Motorists travelling Highway 23 between Foley and Ogilvie may encounter delays beginning

June 28.

Segments of the road will be reduced to a single lane with flaggers and pilot cars controlling traffic seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.

Crews will reduce up to four miles of Highway 23 to a single lane at a time as crews resurface each segment of road. Flaggers and a pilot car will allow alternating one-way traffic through each work zone as crews complete their work.

Motorists entering any Highway 23 work zone from an intersecting road or driveway must wait for the pilot car and follow it through the work zone. For more information on how to safely navigate a work zone that utilizes a pilot car, visit www.dot.state.mn.us/d3/newsrels/11/9/13pilotcarsafety.html.

The project will be completed by mid-July. All residences and businesses will remain accessible during the project.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride and preserve the road's pavement for up to 10 years.
