Drinking Water Systems Iron Removal Systems Salt Delivery Appleton, MN Phone 289-1999 lHHHHl Take Off On A Construction Underway on Highway 28 According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, work on Highway 28 from Graceville, east to Morris started last week. This highway improvement project will involve three phases. Only the first phase is now underway. Road crews will spend the first two to three weeks installing new edge drains. Drivers should be aware that there will be intermittent lane clo- sures along this 21-mile stretch of roadway, with flagers controlling traf- fic at the construction scene. In about two weeks, crews will tlien start the task of replacing cul- verts along this same stretch. These culvert replacements will also require temporary lane closures at various points along Highway 28. Then starting in mid-July, crews will mil off the top surface of the roadway and replace it with a new, smooth driving surface. This resur- facing will require closing of one lane at a time with flagers on the scene controlling traffic, as no detour will be used. This last phase of the project will last until early October. Central Specialities is the prime contractor on this $3.8 million project. Drivers are reminded to slow down and observe all traffic signs in a con- struction zone. Fines are doubled and drivers should be prepared to expect the unexpected. The class of 1973 of Ortonville are having their 25 year class reunion Saturday, July ?8, at the Big Stone- Church Camp. Members of the class are asked to please send in their RSVP response as soon as possible. If anyone has any questions, they are asked to contact Susan Klitzke at 839-2446.
