Highway 7 Resurfacing project begins today

A resurfacing project on Highway 7 near Silver Lake was scheduled to begin today, Wednesday, Aug. 29. Paving will occur on Highway 7 from just east of Silver Lake to the junction of Highway 25.
The road will be reduced to one lane and a pilot car will be directing traffic. Motorists should anticipate delays.
Benefits of the project include a smoother road surface and extending the life of the pavement. The project is estimated to cost $3.1 million and to be complete by Oct. 12. Central Specialties is the contractor.
For more information on the project visit the project Web page at http://www.mndot.gov/d8/projects/hwy7silverlake.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation asks motorists to slow down and pay attention while driving through work zones. Motorists who speed through a work zone or who disobey work zone flaggers face a $300 fine. Plan ahead for your travel using 511.
