Lane Restrictions on a Portion of Levee Road Beginning July 6, 2020

(July 1, 2020 Red Wing, Minn.) – The City of Red Wing Public Works Department will be shifting lanes on the portion of Levee Road from the bulkheads west to Withers Harbor Drive beginning Monday, July 6. The lanes will be shifted to the south side of the road to allow the US Army Corps of Engineers to do dredging of the Mississippi River. The dredging will include the removal of approximately 45,000 yards of material to keep the river open to barge traffic.  The work is expected to be completed in 6 weeks depending on the amount of material that will need to be dredged.

The lanes will be shifted Monday through Friday, however, will revert back to the normal traffic lanes on Saturday and Sunday.

Traffic control will be in place. Drivers are encouraged to avoid this area.

City crews appreciate the cooperation and patience of neighbors, drivers, and pedestrians during this time of inconvenience. Motorists are encouraged to stay alert and drive carefully through all work zones and use alternate routes whenever possible.
