Eastbound I-90 closures planned Feb. 24 at Dresbach bridge to move equipment

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Eastbound Interstate 90 motorists at the Dresbach bridge project site will encounter brief delays at night on Wednesday, Feb. 24 as traffic is periodically stopped to move construction equipment and materials, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

A State Patrol trooper will stop traffic about every 15 minutes beginning at 9 p.m. and lasting until 1 a.m. The site is at mile marker 276 about 1 mile west of the Mississippi River. Traffic will be stopped for about 15 minutes at a time and then vehicles will be allowed through before the next traffic stoppage.

The $187.5 million river bridge project is a cooperative effort between the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation and will continue into the fall. The project includes constructing a new I-90 crossing over the Mississippi River and reconstructing the Highway 61/14 and the I-90 interchange.

MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
