Motorists traveling Highway 71 between Todd Line Road, south of Wadena, and Todd County Road 23 in Bertha, may encounter workers, heavy equipment and delays as the road is resurfaced beginning Monday, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said in a news release.

Segments of Highway 71 will be reduced to a single lane from sunrise to sunset through early-August. Flaggers and a pilot car will control traffic through the daily work zone. Motorists approaching the work zone must slow down, be prepared to stop, obey the flaggers and use caution when following the pilot car through the work zone.

The project will provide a smoother ride along eight miles of Highway 71 and extend the life of eight miles of the road, MnDOT said.
