I-90 bridge work near Luverne to restrict lanes

MANKATO, Minn. – Motorists on Interstate 90 east of Luverne are advised that lane restrictions  are expected to be in place on or  before Oct. 31 for about  one month as crews work on bridges in the area.

Traffic will be restricted with inside lane closures and motorists are advised to watch for trucks entering the work zone.

I-90 eastbound and westbound bridges over the Rock River have been monitored for erosion since the area experienced high waters and log jams.  MnDOT engineers want to add additional rip rap (rocks) to mitigate concerns of scour around the piers.

The work will secure the safety of traveling public during future high water events.

Landwehr Construction of St. Cloud was awarded the project with a bid of $538,845.
