Lane closures begin July 6 on the Highway 60 bridge over the Mississippi River in Wabasha




ROCHESTER, Minn. — Motorists will encounter temporary lane closures and delays on the Highway 60 bridge over the Mississippi River in Wabasha beginning Tuesday, July 6, as crews conduct an in-depth inspection of the bridge, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The inspection will last approximately three days, weather permitting.


The equipment needed to conduct the inspection requires a lane closure and traffic will be reduced to a single lane controlled by flaggers from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Both lanes will be open each evening after the inspectors have completed their work.


Routine inspections of this bridge and other Mississippi River bridges are conducted annually and an in-depth inspection takes place once every other year. 


MnDOT urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a roadway that has been blocked with barriers or cones.
