Motorists should be on the lookout for roadwork signs, lane closures, lane shifts, and reduced speeds.

The cable median will be installed along a 10-mile stretch of Highway 10 between 66th street, north of Sauk Rapids, and Halfway Crossing north of Rice.

The high-tension safety cable helps prevent severe or fatal cross-median crashes.

The $1.3-million project is expected to be completed in late June.
