(September 25, 2018, Red Wing, Minn.) – The City of Red Wing Public Works Department would like to inform you that there will be no parking on either side of East Avenue between West Fifth and West Sixth Streets beginning Wednesday, September 26. Parking will also be restricted on West Fifth Street between East Avenue and Bush Street.
The intersection of West Fifth Street and East Avenue will be closed with the exception of the eastbound traffic which will be able to turn onto West Fifth Street from East Avenue.
The closure is necessary to allow for repairs to the storm tunnel located below the street.
The restrictions will begin at approximately 7:00 a.m. on September 26 and remain in place until approximately October 5, weather dependent.
Parking will again be allowed and the intersection reopened as soon as the work is completed. Traffic control will be in place and drivers are encouraged to avoid this area.
City crews and our Contractors appreciate the cooperation and patience of neighbors, drivers, and pedestrian during this inconvenience. Motorists are encouraged to stay alert and drive carefully through all work zones and to use alternate routes whenever possible. Thank you in advance for your patience.
