Lane closures planned on Hwy 74, Hwy 60 bridges for repairs

ROCHESTER, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 60 near Dumfries and Highway 74 near Weaver will encounter lane closures beginning Tuesday, Aug. 16 while repairs are made to the areas around two bridges, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Work on both repair projects is expected to be completed by Labor Day.

Motorists should always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
