Motorists will encounter minor traffic delays this week on various state highways in several southeast Minnesota counties as crews begin installing rumble strips, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Delays should be minimal through the work zone. On two-lane roads, motorists will take turns using the single open lane while being directed by flaggers. On four-lane roads, there will be lane closures.

· Hwy 19: 1.4 miles east of Goodhue Co. Rd. 20 to Hwy 61, Goodhue County
· Hwy 246: 0.3 miles east of Rice Co. Rd. 26 to Hwy 56, Rice and Goodhue counties
