Short closure of southbound North Bench Street at Hwy 61 in Red Wing planned Oct. 19

RED WING, Minn. – The southbound traffic lane of North Bench Street in Red Wing at Hwy 61 will be closed Oct. 19 as crews install equipment for the intersection’s traffic signal, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

The construction work is related to the Hwy 61 Withers Harbor bridge project that wrapped up major work in Red Wing last month. North Bench Street’s southbound lane will reopen later in the day once the equipment is installed in the road,

Full construction is scheduled to resume in 2024. Crews replaced the northbound bridge this year and will replace the southbound bridge over Withers Harbor Drive in Red Wing in 2024.
