Closure of Potter St./Third St. Intersection Nov. 5-9 near Red Wing Bridge
RED WING, Minn. — The intersection of Potter St. and Third Street will be closed Nov. 5-9 for construction workers to grade the area and install curb and gutter, according to the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of transportation.
Work will begin Monday morning, Nov. 5, weather permitting. The closure is needed for the crews to fully complete the grading and curb and gutter work while maintaining safety for motorists and workers. If work is completed sooner, the intersection will open then.
The Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge project includes building a new bridge to replace the Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge, replacing the historic slip ramp Highway 63 Bridge over Highway 61, reconstructing approach roadways in Minnesota and Wisconsin, and improving access to Red Wing and upgrading pedestrian and bicyclist crossings. The prime contractor on this $63.4 million construction project is Zenith Tech. The new bridge is expected to open to traffic by fall of 2019.
