I-35 striping work completed between Elko New Market to Faribault

FARIBAULT, Minn. — Work has been completed on the Interstate 35 striping project between Elko New Market and Faribault, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Crews worked overnight in September to stripe the edge lines and center lines, while keeping one lane of traffic open in each direction.

Safety

Motorists may encounter lane closures or lane shifts, uneven road surfaces, equipment and other unexpected obstacles when driving near or through work zones. MnDOT advises motorists to: 

  • Expect delays, especially during peak travel times
  • Go hands-free and minimize other distractions (e.g., don’t eat or drink while driving)
  • Follow posted speed limits; the fine for speeding in a work zone is $300
  • Avoid making lane changes within work zones
