Key goals of the Winona Bridge construction project include:
- Keeping the river crossing open
- Opening the new bridge as soon as possible
- Maintaining good communication about the project
- Minimizing effects on local businesses during construction
The construction staging plan (PDF) was developed with these goals in mind, and should result in only minimal traffic impacts to the community. The main traffic impact will be the closure of Third Street underneath the bridges for the 2015 construction season.
MnDOT is committed to maintaining communication about the project with the community and travelers, especially any construction related traffic impacts. “Winona Welcomes You” is a program we’ve developed in cooperation with the business community to help communicate that Winona is open for business. Local businesses are encouraged to help share this message and information through the use of the free tools available below:
