MN receives two national awards for roadway safety The Minnesota Department of Transportation received two National Roadway Safety Awards from the Fed- eral Highway Administration and the Roadway Safety Foundation. The awards recognize agencies that exhibit excellence in roadway design, opera- tions, planning and safety. One award recognized MnDOT for using micro surfacing--adding a thin layer of asphalt and crushed rock mix- ture to the road surface--to reduce crashes on wet roads. Micro surfacing creates moretexture on-the road sur, face, and the dark asphalt causes the road surface to warm up faster and re- tain heat better than the original con- crete surface. During the 20-year study period, which focused on a stretch of Interstate 94 east of Monticello, wet- weather crashes decreased by 76 per- cent after applying micro surfacing. Total crashes during this time de- creased by 19 percent, despite an over- all traffic increase on the road of 65 percent. MnDOT was also recognized, along with Wright County in central Min- nesota, for the County Roads Safety Plans Program. MnDOT coordinates with several counties to more effec- Ortonville School menu Tuesday, Nov. 22: Breakfast! Whole Grain Cereal, Breakfast Bites, Mixed Fruit Sauce, Milk.

Wright County's safety plan focuses on road- way departure crashes and intersection crashes. Wright County's safety im- provements have contributed to a 34 percent reduction of fatal and serious injury crashes since 1997. "MnDOT is proud to accept these awards on behalf of the many trans- portation partners that worked together to make these safety initiatives a suc- cess," said Tom Sorel, MnDOT com- missioner. "These projects are terrific examples of how Minnesota is a na- tional leader in reducing roadway fa- talities and serious injury crashes." In total, the U.S. Department of Transportation announced nine award winners and two honorable mentions. "It is a privilege to formally recog- Roadway Safety Awards," said John Porcari, deputy secretary, U.S. Depart- ment of Transportation. "Each one of this year's entries demonstrated a com- mitment to saving lives by improving: our nation's roadways." Minnesota traffic safety efforts are components of Toward Zero Deaths, the state's primary road safety initiative that is a partnership between Depart-. ment of Public Safety, Department of Health, the University of Minnesota; MnDOT and others. A primary vision. of the TZD program is to create a safe driving culture in Minnesota in which." motorists support a goal of zero road" fatalities by practicing and promoting safe and smart driving behavior. TZD focuses on the application of four: strategic areas to reduce crashes -- ed- ucation, enforcement, engineering and emergency trauma response.

Hunters: don't throw away un- used either-sex deer permit Hunters who did not tag a deer or use the either-sex permit during the firearms season may still have a chance to put some venison in the freezer, according to Lou Cornicelli, wildlife research manager for the Minnesota Department of Natural Re- sources (DNR). "A change this year allows an un- used either-sex permit from the firearms season to remain valid for the muzzleloader season, if you have the appropriate license," Cornicelli said. "The either-sex permit is valid for ei- ther season, in the same area, pro- vided you have a license for that Season." This change aigplies only to the lot- tery zone. Cornicelli reminds hunters in the lottery zone that they are only allowed to tag one deer during the 2011 hunt- ing season. They may not use bonus tags in the lottery zone. They may be able to harvest additional deer in man- aged, intensive or special hunt areas. Hunters who wish to take advan- tage of this change must purchase a li- cense for the muzzleloader season. Licenses can be purchased at any of the 1,500 license agent locations in the state, via telephone at 888-665- 4236 or online atwww.mndnr.gov/li- censes. A convenience fee is added to telephone and Internet license pur- I chases. The muzzleloader season in Min-i nesota runs from Saturday, Nov. 26 until Sunday, Dec. I 1.

Sunday afternoon, an eight-year- old Oak Grove boy fell through a thin coating of ice on a small neighbor- hood pond. He was rescued after about 15 minutes in the icy water and treatedat the hospital. "Kids are attracted to ice like a magnet," said Tim Smalley, DNR boat and water safety specialist. "They just don't know how much ice it takes to support a person, nor what is or isn't safe." As of Nov. 21, no ice in Minnesota has been reported by DNR conserva- tion officers as consistently four inches thick, the recommended mini- mum thickness for walking and small group activities. Ice safety guidelines also recommend a minimum of five inches of new, clear ice for snowmo- biles and ATVs, and eight to 12 inches "Some years we receive reports of children falling through ice and drowning around the holidays, it's just so incredibly tragic," Smalley said. "Since records have been kept, a quar- ter of those who die by falling through the ice are nine years old or younger." Smalley said children should not go out on the ice without adult supervi- sion, even when conditions improve. Last winter, four adults died falling through the ice. The DNR recommends contacting a local bait shop or resort at the desti- nation lake to find out if ice is safe for the planned activities.
