MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists will encounter minor traffic delays April 23-26, weather permitting, on several state highways in South Central Minnesota as crews install centerline and shoulder rumble strips, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The delays are expected to be minimal through the work zone. On two-lane roads, motorists will take turns using the single open lane while being directed by flaggers. On four-lane highways, there will be lane closures.

  • Highway 19, east of New Prague
  • Highway 91, south of Ellsworth
