FREEBORN COUNTY, MN – Construction season is getting underway, and  a major project in our area is beginning.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is resurfacing Highway 65 all the way from the Iowa border to around the Interstate 35 exit near Albert Lea. MnDOT officials are asking drivers to be prepared for about 15 to 20 minute delays.

“When they approach the construction they’ll see a flagger and they’ll be expected to stop and wait for the pilot car,” said MnDOT Project Engineer Daniel Pirkl.

The project costs more than 2 million dollars. It’s scheduled to be finished this October.
