The replacement of traffic signs that are at the end of their service lives will begin on Monday, April 25 along several highways in southcentral and southwest Minnesota, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Among the traffic signs to be placed are those along Minnesota 86 from the junction of Interstate 90 to the junction of Minnesota 60, and on I-90 from east of Worthington to east of Jackson
MnDOT replaces traffic signs on a 15-year cycle to ensure signs are legible for motorists during the day and at night. Over time, traffic signs experience wear and tear, and frequently lose reflectivity in low-light conditions long before indications of their age are obvious in normal conditions. There will be little impact to traffic, however, MnDOT reminds motorists to drive with caution and watch for crews working near the roadway. The project is expected to be completed by late August, weather permitting.
