Hwy 9 resurfacing project from New London to Sunburg starts August 1
WILLMAR, Minn. – The Highway 9 resurfacing project starts Monday, August 1. This project includes the resurfacing of Highway 9 from New London to Sunburg and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) work in New London at the intersection of Highway 9 and 2nd Ave NE.
The Highway 9 project also includes bridge grinding work at Nest Lake Bridge. Bridge grinding includes milling of the top surface to reduce sound. Both projects will be done under traffic with a flagger and pilot car.
The estimated project cost is $1.8 million. For more information on this project visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/d8/projects/hwy9.
MnDOT asks motorists to slow down and pay attention while driving through work zones. Remember orange cones, no phones. Motorists who speed through a work zone or who disobey work zone flaggers face a $300 fine.
