Overnight closure of Hwy 79 near Evansville set for Aug. 7-8
DETROIT LAKES, Minn. — Highway 79 under Interstate 94 near Evansville will close to all traffic the nights of Aug. 7 and 8.
The highway closure is necessary so crews can remove the eastbound I-94 bridge deck over the roadway. The highway will close at 9 p.m. each evening and will reopen by 6 a.m. the following morning.
Detours will direct traffic around the closure. The interstate ramps at Highway 79 and I-94 will remain open.
The work is part of the I-94 resurfacing and bridge deck replacement project underway between the Evansville and Garfield exits.
