Potter-Third Street intersection in Red Wing closure extended until Aug. 24

RED WING, Minn. — Motorists should be alert that the closure of the Potter Street and Third Street intersection near the Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge in Red Wing is being extended to Aug. 24 for underground utility work.

Motorists should seek alternate routes around the intersection during this work. The contractor is finishing up work, which involves storm sewer and other services.

The Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge project includes building a new bridge to replace the Highway 63/Eisenhower Bridge, replacing the historic slip ramp Highway 63 Bridge over Highway 61, reconstructing approach roadways in Minnesota and Wisconsin, improving access to Red Wing and upgrading pedestrian and bicyclist crossings.  The prime contractor on this $63.4 million construction project is Zenith Tech. The new bridge is expected to open to traffic by fall of 2019.

Motorists should always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.  For real-time traffic information in Minnesota, call 511 or visit 511mn.org.
