We are still seeing a lot of slow downs each day both ways on 94 between the cities and St Cloud. But, it does look like it may be over soon. The unfortunate sight, is to see the number of collisions that slow things down even before the construction zone.
There are cones, big signs, electric notices and state workers out there in orange vests. But still, people drive to fast and continue to not pay attention as they call and suffer from, as my fellow writer from Oklahoma Noble McIntyre describes, driving inTEXTicated .
For eastbound Crosstown motorists, the right lane of Hwy. 62 from Penn to Nicollet Avenue will be closed Saturday from 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. for grading and striping.
The left eastbound lane will close for the same hours Sunday along the same stretch for the same reason.
Hopefully, people will be on the alert and not add to the slowdowns.
They should keep in mind that work zone violations come with double fines.
Other safety tips include:
- Stay alert, expect the unexpected.
- Allow ample space between you and the car in front of you.
- Anticipate lane shifts – merge when directed to do so.
- Don’t change lanes unnecessarily.
- Don’t speed in work zones; obey the posted speed limits.
- Avoid using mobile phones while driving in work zones.
- Be especially alert at night while driving in work zones.
- Be patient!
