Jake Braking REMINDER

Dear Stillwater Township Residents,

                The season of construction is upon us! It is easy to see that traffic volume has increased and re-directed into areas not typical for our communities because of this. It is a good reminder for all of us to watch how we drive especially around construction zones. Excessive speed is one of the major factors related to fatalities on our Minnesota roadways and it is important for all of us to do our part in slowing down. Enforcement around these construction zones has increased to address these issues which has also included driving around construction barricades as well as noise complaints related to “Jake Braking” by commercial vehicles outlined in Township Ordinance #155. Be a good neighbor this summer and help to reduce traffic concerns on our roadways. For any emergency or non-emergency response from Fire, E.M.S. and law enforcement please call 9-1-1. Thank you for all of your efforts and have a safe construction season!
