I-90 bridge rehabilitation work begins April 30, traffic changes planned in both directions

ST. CHARLES, Minn.  – Motorists on Interstate 90 in Winona County will encounter traffic changes beginning April 30 as construction crews prepare to repair bridges at 12 different locations, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Crews will be reducing lanes in the westbound I-90 lanes to prepare for traffic control beginning April 30. Traffic will then be switched by May 6 with both directions of traffic traveling in single lanes in the westbound lanes. Eastbound traffic will switch over near St. Charles.

The work will also close the eastbound Enterprise Rest Area on May 6 for approximately six weeks. Once the eastbound bridges are completed, traffic will be switched into the eastbound lanes with traffic using single lanes in each direction.

Additional traffic switches are planned through the summer as crews move ahead to other bridges along I-90 in Winona County for repair work.
