If you have travel plans for Labor Day weekend, be prepared for a little traffic. MnDOT Director of Communications Kevin Gutknecht says there won’t be any construction going on, but the road work areas will still mean road closures and slower speed limits. “There are a number of work zones that folks may encounter during their holiday weekend travel,” Gutknecht said. “Work zones can still be dangerous places, so folks should slow down, take their time and proceed cautiously.”
A 35-year-old Breckenridge man was transported to the hospital after diving into 3-feet deep of water Thursday afternoon in Ottertail Lake, authorities say.
