Road Construction Areas are Hazardous for SnowmobilersAbstract:
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) would like to advise snowmobilers that riding in recent road construction areas are hazardous and should be avoided. There are several locations throughout Minnesota where road construction activities took place last season and are not finished yet, with some type of work to resume again this coming spring. These areas may have several construction related items in place over the winter months that could present a safety hazard to an unsuspecting snowmobiler. Driving over or into any of these objects could cause damage to the snowmobile and injury to the riders. Mn/DOT’s advice is to avoid these construction areas.
