Be prepared for delays and seek alternate routes, especially at peak travel times. Be patient and add time to your commute the first few days as motorists learn the new set-up, MnDOT advised.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
