(May 18, 2023, Red Wing, Minn.) – The City of Red Wing would like to inform the public that the following notification has been received from the Minnesota Department of Transportation:
RED WING, Minn. – Highway 63 motorists crossing the Mississippi River in Red Wing should be alert for overnight lane closures beginning Monday evening, May 22, as MnDOT bridge maintenance crews clean bridges, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Work will take place from 8 p.m. to 6:30 a.m. During that work, sand, debris, and other material that accumulated during winter are swept up before crews use fresh water in high pressure pumps to spray down the gutter lines and joints.
Motorists can expect brief traffic delays with lane closures.
MnDOT’s three bridge maintenance crews in southeast Minnesota flush more than 400 bridges during this spring maintenance effort.
MnDOT crews will be doing this work on the Mississippi River Bridge and its adjacent bridges during this one night of work. The Withers Harbor Bridge on Highway 61 is under construction and will not be part of this effort.
Motorists may encounter lane closures or lane shifts, uneven road surfaces, equipment and other unexpected obstacles when driving near or through work zones. MnDOT advises motorists to:
