Highway 61 Ski Road/296th Street Intersection Opens

Highway 61 is now open to traffic as of Monday at the Ski Road/296th Street intersection near Frontenac, and the Ski Road/Hill Avenue intersection will close as crews begin constructing turn-lanes, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Passing lanes are being added in both directions at the Highway 61 and Ski Road/296th Street intersection to reduce congestion and allow for safer passing.

The work is not fully complete yet, but the intersection will re-open on Monday and crews will continue construction of the passing lanes.

The intersection north of that on Highway 61 at Ski Road/Hill Avenue will close starting today (Monday, August 28) for turn-lane construction and it will re-open in September.

Highway 61 remains closed to through traffic.

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.
