MNDOT Backhoe Operator Tragically Killed Clearing Debris

Our sympathies go out to friends and family of the young man who was killed Tuesday when his backhoe tipped into the Minnesota River while he attempted to clear debris near a culvert going under Highway 169.

Over the next several weeks as MnDOT employees and other workers perform back-breaking work in dangerous situations to try to clean up after today’s snowstorm and try to minimize the destructiveness of this spring’s flooding, please be careful. We’ll be thinking about you.
