DULUTH, MN -- Nothing says summer in Minnesota quite like road work.
MnDOT announced Thursday they have more than 200 construction projects across the state on their agenda this year.
Some of the big projects include the Twin Ports Interchange.
Drivers will see construction there from now until 2024.
This summer, crews will re-pave Highway 53 in Pike Lake.
They will also work on Highway 61 near Two Harbors.
Grand Marais and Grand Portage can also expect road work.
If and when drivers encounter construction, MnDOT Duluth Construction Engineer Andrew Deming said to limit distractions and slow down.
"We just ask that everyone focus on driving and slow down when you're going through the work zone," Deming said. "We want to keep the traveling public safe, as well as the folks in the work zone working on construction safe."
MnDOT said these projects will help maintain Minnesota’s roads and bridges, improve safety, and support thousands of construction jobs.
