Motorists on Highway 61 north of Lake City will experience lane closures as crews are scheduled to begin resurfacing the road Tuesday, September 5th, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The Highway 61 resurfacing work is anticipated to begin Sept. 5 at the south end of the project from Hansen’s Harbor to Wells Creek Bridge. This work is expected to be completed by Sunday, September 10.
Highway 61 will remain open for residents and people visiting businesses during the resurfacing work.
Flaggers will direct motorists through the project area, so short traffic delays are possible.
Motorists who don't need to access properties in the work zone should use Goodhue County Road 5 in Lake City and Highway 58 in Red Wing to detour around the project site.
Crews are adding the final surface layer on Highway 61 at the north side of the project from Sevastopol Road/ 277th Avenue to Ski Road/Hill Avenue and work is scheduled to be completed by next Tuesday.
Flaggers are directing traffic in this area also, so short-term delays are possible.
