[ARCHIVED] 169 Redefine - Safety Message from MnDOT

169 Redefine Safety Message 2While we are aware motorists are still adjusting to navigating through the 169 Redefine work zone, safety has become a top concern for construction workers on the job. People are speeding by and not seeing or obeying traffic control signs, as reported by the contractor and MnDOT, and crews are concerned they will get seriously hurt or killed. Please slow down for their safety and yours.

The public is reminded to please practice patience when traveling through the area, pay extra attention to the road in front of you, watch for construction signs and lane shifts. Remember these traffic changes are new to everyone. The Hwy 169 work zone is being monitored by extra law enforcement and fines are $300. Safety is everyone’s responsibility and we want to ensure motorists get where they need to go, and construction crews get home to their families each day.

MnDOT has set up a phone and email hotline for 169 Redefine comments and questions.

Phone: 612-351-0303
