NORTH MANKATO — High temperatures and wind caused problems this afternoon with the yellow tubes used as delineators on a dangerous stretch of Highway 14 between Nicollet and North Mankato.
Minnesota Department of Transportation crews removed the delineators -- a safety feature designed to avoid accidents by distracted drivers -- about 4:30 p.m. today.
Several head-on collisions have happened on the affected 6-mile stretch of highway.
MnDOT's spokesperson Rebecca Arndt reminds motorists that although the yellow tubes have been removed and there's no center line at this time, drivers should not pass other vehicles in that area.
