East Fourth Street closed in Red Wing to re-chlorinate water lines near Red Wing Bridge

RED WING, Minn. – East Fourth Street in Red Wing between Bluff and Sanderson streets will be closed Thursday, Sept. 7 for crews to re-chlorinate the water lines, according to the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation.

The road is expected to be closed for one to two weeks as testing occurs. Motorists may use alternate routes during this time. Crews have been doing work in this area as part of the Red Wing Bridge project.

The Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge remains open to traffic during construction, barring any emergency closures.

This project includes building a new bridge to replace the Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge, replacing the historic Highway 63 Bridge over Highway 61, reconstructing approach roadways in Minnesota and Wisconsin, improving access to Red Wing and upgrading pedestrian and bicyclist crossings.

The prime contractor on this $63.4 million construction project is Zenith Tech. The new bridge is expected to open to traffic by fall of 2019.
