Motorists in Redwood Falls can expect delays beginning Friday as a resurfacing project on Highway 71 gets underway. The work at the intersection with Highway 19 will take place on Friday and Monday.
The intersection will remain open during the construction, and flaggers will direct traffic safely through the work zone. Crews will be removing 2 inches of pavement prior to resurfacing the highway. This project is separate from another resurfacing project on Highway 19 in Redwood Falls that took place earlier this year.
Department of Transportation officials say that motorists will experience a smoother and safer road surface when the entire project is complete.
