UNDATED -- If you are heading up north for the fishing opener, you won't encounter much in the way of road construction. That is, unless you leave early or stay through Sunday.

Minnesota Department of Transportation spokeswoman Judy Jacobs says most of their big projects don't start until June. And, the ones that are underway will be shut down Friday.

Jacobs say the only two projects that should impact motorists are lane closures in the southbound lanes of Highway 10 north of Little Falls and road work on Highway 371 north of Baxter.
