Bridge Construction Update – Lane Closures Continue into Early Fall

The Bridge contractor continues to work on the concrete railing repairs on the northbound side of the Bridge.  Progress is being made, but it is taking longer than originally expected.  The lane closure will remain in place for northbound traffic across the Bridge until work is complete, which may take a few more weeks.  Once the northbound side is close to being fully complete, crews will begin to work on the southbound side of the Bridge and there will be a lane closure for that direction of traffic.  MnDOT and the Contractor expect for all railing repair work to be wrapped up in early fall.

Please check the Bridge Project Website for additional details.
