All-way flashing red traffic signal at Highway 61 & Spring Creek Road until Nov. 28

RED WING, Minn. — Highway 61 motorists on the west end of Red Wing will see a flashing red signal in all directions at the intersection with Spring Creek Road/Avenue, where crews installed new signal mast arms on Tuesday, according to the city of Red Wing and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists will see the all-way red flash, which is purposeful for a period of time for new signal for testing and motorist awareness. The official startup and full activation of the signal is planned for at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 28. Crews will complete the work on Wednesday morning and the new signal will be operational. Motorists should proceed with caution at the new signal as motorists become accustomed to its placement and operation.
