The road preservation projects that were scheduled to begin Monday, August 12 on Highway 10 and Highway 59 in Otter Tail County were postponed due to scheduling conflicts.
According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the work on Highway 10 may now begin as early as Monday, August 19.
The work will start on Highway 10, east of Perham to Frazee, which includes the Highway 78 and County Road 80 exit/entrance ramps. Crews will be in this area for approximately two weeks, and will then switch to Highway 59, north of Pelican Rapids.
As part of this work, crews will start by milling off a thin layer of pavement before repaving the roadway. This preventative maintenance work will help extend the life of the road.
Final striping is expected to take place after Labor Day.
Motorists should be prepared to encounter alternating lane closures in both directions from Frazee to east of Perham.
More information will be announced when the updated schedule is available.
