Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 18, weather permitting, for the Highway 61 project from Wabasha to Minnesota City, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The project includes resurfacing 27 miles of southbound Highway 61 from Wabasha to Minnesota City, improving seven bridges, making enhancements in Weaver and installing a Reduced Conflict Intersection at Highway 61 and Highway 42 near Kellogg.
Work is expected to be complete at the end of October.
Traffic will be reduced to a single lane for northbound and southbound vehicles through the construction zone from April 18 to late October. Some stretches may be up to 14 miles long.
During bridge work, traffic will travel in a single lane on the bridge.
