Paving work at Winona Bridge planned Nov. 2-6 on roads, bicycle path

Motorists near the Winona Bridge may encounter workers paving areas adjacent to the bridge from Nov. 2-6 at various sites, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

  • On Friday, Nov. 2, flaggers will be directing traffic underneath the bridge at Latsch Island as crews pave the road
  • On Saturday, Nov. 3, crews will be paving on Fourth Street in Winona up to the bridge, which is under on construction.
  • On Monday, Nov. 5, crews will be paving south approach to the bridge into the existing traffic lanes on Fourth Street, so motorists may again see flaggers directing traffic. Workers will also be paving Second Street under the bridge with flaggers directing traffic.
  • On Tuesday, paving crews will be finishing work with the paving of the bicycle trail on the Mississippi River levy.

Traffic can be delayed for short periods where flaggers are directing traffic.

The new Winona Bridge, Bridge No. 85851, carries Highway 43 traffic in both directions across the bridge while the historic Winona Bridge, Bridge No. 5900, is closed and being rehabilitated. The older bridge is expected to open to traffic in the fall of 2019. Contracts for the new bridge and the rehabilitation work total $145.8 million.
