Portion of Highway 14 in New Ulm scheduled for sealcoating
NEW ULM – Motorists are advised to expect delays on Highway 14 (North Broadway Street) in New Ulm beginning Wednesday, Aug. 28, weather permitting, as crews apply a seal coat.
Highway 14 traffic from 7th Street North to Walmart should anticipate lane closures during operations. Traffic will be controlled with flaggers and a pilot car. Motorists should slow down, drive with caution and watch for workers, equipment and traffic control devices.
The seal coat is a preventative maintenance measure that provides a protective layer, reducing deterioration due to sun and moisture. Drivers are urged to slow down and be alert for loose gravel and oil spraying in these areas.
The sealcoating is expected to be completed by the end of the week. Then, crews will return a couple of weeks later to paint final striping, which will be done under traffic.
