Open house on Nov. 18

An open house occurred on Nov. 18, 2021, to hear about plans for the replacement of the Hwy 61 bridge over Withers Harbor Dr. in Red Wing.  Project partners and MnDOT staff shared updates about design improvements, construction staging, aesthetics and trail amenities.

These materials were shared during the open house. Questions and feedback can be submitted to project contacts.

Summary of work

  • Replace the Hwy 61 bridge over Withers Harbor Dr. and Hay Creek in Red Wing.
  • Reconstruct the approaches to the bridge from Bench St. to Withers Harbor Dr. and make other road improvements.

Construction will begin in spring 2023 and be complete in fall 2024.

Traffic impacts


  • Traffic on Hwy 61 will be reduced to one lane each direction and shifted for bridge work.
  • Local road detours will be utilized as needed during certain phases of construction.
