Spring is nearly here. Soon, the weather will get warmer and the road crews will descend upon Rochester for an annual ritual: road construction.

In a few weeks, the State Transportation Department will be releasing a list of all the road projects that will take place around Minnesota this summer. But we've got a sneak preview of some of the work being done around Rochester that we thought you'd like to know about!

Mike Dougherty, MnDOT's Public Affairs Coordinator for the area, stopped into our news station to give a little preview of what motorists in Rochester and the surrounding communities can expect to deal with on our roads this summer.

Watch the short video with Mike and find out for yourself about one of the parts of town that will be under major construction starting this summer.
