Overnight closure of local road to begin September 12
2nd Street closing to through traffic but will remain open for downtown parking


(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists traveling 2nd Street near downtown Hastings will encounter overnight detours as the road is closed between Eddy Street and Sibley Street starting at 8 p.m. on Wednesday, September 12.

All lanes will reopen daily by 6 a.m., and parking will remain available on 2nd Street immediately east of the bridge (from the east access ramp to Sibley Street) for those visiting businesses in the area. Drivers can access downtown Hastings at 3rd Street or 4th Street.

The closure is needed as crews remove falsework – or temporary supports – for the new Hwy 61 Hastings Bridge’s south abutment and southbound lanes spanning 2nd Street. This work is not related to the current main span float-in and will not affect two-way traffic across the river nor access to local businesses and residences.

The schedule is subject to change.

Travelers and residents with questions are encouraged to call the Hastings Bridge Project Hotline at 651-775-5244 or visit the project’s web site at
