Hwy 56 Kenyon bridge replacement nears completion, temporary signal removed

KENYON, Minn. – Temporary traffic signals at the Highway 56 bridge at Kenyon are being removed today, Monday, Oct. 16 as the bridge replacement project nears completion, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Motorists should be alert for construction crews, who are completing the remaining work around the bridge at Kenyon. Flaggers will control traffic during that work. Traffic will be able to use both lanes of the new bridge when the contractor is not working.

This is part of a project on Highway 56 to replace two bridges: one south of Stanton at Prairie Creek and the other north of Kenyon at the North Fork of the Zumbro River.

The bridge near Stanton opened in August.

Lunda Construction is the prime contractor on the $2.4 million project.

To learn more about the project or sign up for email updates, go to MnDOT’s project website at www.mndot.gov/d6/projects/hwy56-bridges/.

Motorists should always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones. For real-time traffic information in Minnesota, call 511 or visit www.511mn.org.
