Hwy 210 at Mississippi River bridge in Brainerd lanes close July 24–27

Baxter, Minn. – Motorists who cross the Highway 210/Washington Street bridge spanning the Mississippi River in Brainerd will encounter heavy equipment, crews and daytime delays as both directions of the road are intermittently reduced to single lane Monday through Thursday, July 24–27.

The lane closures will occur from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. daily while crews conduct routine maintenance and seal the bridge’s deck and railings.

Motorists approaching the daytime work zones should slow down, be prepared to stop if necessary, and move over within the work zone as appropriate to give crews a safe space to work.

When complete, the project will help extend the life of the bridge.
