Expect delays for road maintenance on Hwy 68 from Morgan to Hwy 4 starting June 26

MANKATO, Minn. — Motorists can expect delays on Hwy 68 from Morgan to Hwy 4 north of Sleepy Eye as crews seal coat the road from June 26 to June 28, weather permitting.

Hwy 68 traffic may encounter loose rock on the road and should anticipate lane closures during operations. Traffic will be controlled with a pilot car and flaggers.

Seal coat is a preventative maintenance application, extending the life of the pavement. It provides a protective layer, reducing deterioration due to sun and moisture.

MnDOT urges motorists to slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.
