Third Street and Potter Street intersection to close Oct. 28-Nov. 1 near Red Wing Bridge for paving work


RED WING, Minn. — The intersection of Third Street and Potter Street near the Red Wing Bridge will be closed beginning Monday, Oct. 28, for five days to complete paving, according to MnDOT and the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.

Access to Red Wing businesses and parking lots will continue, but motorists will not be able to travel through the intersection during the paving work. The intersection is expected to open by Friday, Nov. 1.

Meanwhile, crews are working on the new bridge to get it open to traffic this fall. A ribbon-cutting ceremony to mark the start of traffic on the new bridge is tentatively scheduled for Nov. 14, but the date could be moved depending on construction progress in the coming weeks.

The Highway 63 Bridge project includes building a new bridge to replace the Highway 63 Bridge, replacing the historic slip ramp Highway 63 Bridge over Highway 61, reconstructing approach roadways in Minnesota and Wisconsin, improving access to Red Wing, and upgrading pedestrian and bicyclist crossings. Zenith Tech, Inc., is the prime contractor on the $63.4 million construction project. Traffic on the new bridge is expected by fall 2019.

Learn more about the project or sign up for email updates at MnDOT’s project website. You can also follow the Facebook page for this project.

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
