Brief nighttime traffic stoppages planned June 21 on I-90 Dresbach Bridge

ROCHESTER, Minn. – Interstate 90 motorists will encounter short-term traffic delays near the Dresbach Bridge construction site beginning at 11:15 p.m., Tuesday, June 21 (tonight) as crews repair the road shoulder on the Wisconsin side of the project, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Traffic in both directions of I-90 will be stopped for 15 minutes or less each time during the repairs, which are expected to take approximately two hours. After each traffic stoppage, traffic will be waved through before the next stoppage.

Crews will be fixing areas near the road shoulder that have been eroded because of recent rains.

The Dresbach Bridge project is a cooperative effort between the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation. The project includes constructing a new I-90 crossing over the Mississippi River and reconstructing the Highway 61/14 and the I-90 interchange.

The $187.5 million project began in late 2012 and will be completed this fall.

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.
