Double Fines in Construction Zones

Minnesota's second season is about to begin: road construction. State Patrol Sergent Curt Mowers says expect double fines for those caught speeding in construction zones. He says those fines are typically $117. Of that, $40 is the state fine, the rest is court costs. He says only the state fine is doubled.
Mowers says the fines are levied, whether or not work is going on in the zone.

A $2.9 million safety and pavement improvement project will begin on Monday, April 13, 2009, in the Deerwood area. The work will take place on Highway 6 from Highway 18 to Highway 210 in Deerwood and Highway 210 west of Crow Wing County Road 135 in Crosby to Highway 6 in Deerwood.
Crews will resurface the roadway, including shoulders and turn-lanes, repair/replace culverts and construct new turn-lanes. All work will be done during daylight hours.

Motorists will encounter single-lane closures controlled by a pilot car and flaggers. The pilot car will be used in rural areas only.

A short-term detour will be in effect for approximately five days prior to the state Fishing Opener on May 8, to allow crews to replace the centerline culverts on Highway 210 between Crosby and Deerwood. The detour will be via Crow Wing County Roads 28 and 12.

Motorists should plan for lane closures and traffic shifts on Highway 210 through the city of Ironton as crews repair sanitary sewer manholes.

Anderson Brothers Construction of Brainerd is the prime contractor.
