Highway 78 from Interstate 94 to Battle Lake is among the areas the Minnesota Department of Transportation will conduct aerial mapping in west central Minnesota this spring.

The mapping will create a record of existing infrastructure and landscape along and adjacent to MnDOT right of way for transportation planning and design work.

Work will begin in late March, weather permitting.

MnDOT crews will paint large white “X” targets on paved surfaces and place plastic or fabric “X” targets on unpaved surfaces.

A survey crew then records the coordinate position and elevation of these targets and provides that information to the aerial photography company. The targets are temporary and will be removed when the photography is completed.

MnDOT requests that landowners not remove or disturb the targets until the photography is completed. If a target must be moved, contact MnDOT survey staff at 218-332-5644 or 800-657-3984.
