The public is invited to attend an in-person public meeting on Wednesday, November 29th to learn more about a project to replace the Highway 61 bridge over CP Rail south of Red Wing, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Join them any time from 4:30 – 6:30 p.m. at the Red Wing Public Library’s Foot Room.
People attending the meeting can learn more about the planned improvements, construction staging, and project schedule.
No formal presentation is planned and people can drop in at any time. If you are unable to attend, you will be able to find information from the public meeting at the project website beginning on the meeting date.
The new Highway 61 bridge over the Canadian Pacific rail line will be constructed to the north of the existing bridge to maintain two-way traffic during construction.
Highway construction will begin in spring of 2024. The construction will be completed in phases and use temporary widening to allow enough space for one lane of traffic in each direction.
Motorists can expect a reduced speed through the work zone, reduced shoulder widths and temporary shoulder and lane closures. Construction should be complete in fall of 2024.
