ST. PAUL -- It's back to work tomorrow for thousands of MnDOT workers now that the government shutdown is over. But, MnDOT's Kevin Gutknecht says the staffers will need to get up-to-speed on their paperwork and impending duties before you start seeing things get back to normal.

He says they will look to get the rest stops opened first then must meet with contractors to get people and equipment back on the job site.

Gutknecht says they lost valuable construction time during the shutdown and want to get back on the job as soon as possible.
