Motorists traveling Highway 7 in McLeod, Meeker and Kandiyohi Counties will encounter lane restrictions beginning this week as crews complete a preventive maintenance project to extend the life of the pavement. Motorists should plan for daily lane closures and expect delays on the road segment where crews are working. During the work, a pilot car and flaggers will direct traffic through the work zone. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for crews and equipment in this moving work zone. Work is expected to be completed by Friday, June 27th, weather permitting.
