MnDOT Statewide Safety Improvement Project

MnDOT will embark on a statewide safety improvement project starting this summer through fall 2018.  Crews will be restriping and installing mumble strips at selected intersections in your community.  Exact dates have not yet been determined.  However, construction will take place during the off-peak hours of 9 am -3 pm daily in the following areas:

  • Hwy 96 between Hwy 61 and Hwy 95
  • Hwy 95 between North Branch and Taylors Falls
  • Hwy 95 between Scandia and Marine on St. Croix
  • Hwy 8 at Forest Lake


Most locations above should be completed in a few days, but motorists, residents and businesses will encounter delays throughout the work. 


A little background on this project.  As you may already know, more than 40% of fatal and serious crashes happen at rural intersections.  With this in mind we are installing the mumble strips to help reduce speed at select locations. A recent study done by FHWA concluded that a similar safety improvement design helped to reduce injury crashes by more than 30%. This safety improvement work will be done at 80 intersections across 20 counties, and six MnDOT districts. This work may also be a low cost solution in the future to improve intersection safety.
