MnDOT encouraging all motorists to focus on safety when driving this Memorial Day weekend

The Minnesota Department of Transportation encourages all motorists who choose to travel during the 2020 Memorial Day holiday weekend to focus on safety when driving through work zones and when interacting with others off the road.  Mike Dougherty, Community Relations Coordinator with MnDOT District 6 in Rochester spoke with KAUS News and stated that even though there may not be as many people on the road this weekend due to the COVID-19 pandemic, motorists should still get themselves back in a safe driving mode if they’re going to be on the roads this weekend…

Dougherty went on to highlight some local road construction projects motorists should watch out for this weekend…

The changing road conditions in work zones require every driver’s undistracted attention. MnDOT urges motorists to be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
