OLMSTED COUNTY, Minn. – Fresh concrete didn’t stop one driver from making an impact.
The Minnesota DOT said a motorist drove more than 1,000 feet through fresh concrete recently.
“This is why work zones are blocked with barricades, signs, cones, etc.,” MnDot said.
The driver received a ticket and an insurance claim.
“Don't make this costly mistake, never go around construction signs or move cones to enter work zone,” MnDot said.
