Interstate 90 paving project between Dakota and state line begins Aug. 5

DAKOTA, Minn. — Motorists on Interstate 90 between Dakota and the Dresbach Bridge at the Minnesota/Wisconsin state line will encounter single lane traffic, short-term ramp detours and delays beginning Monday, Aug. 5 as crews resurface I-90, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Crews will pave the eastbound and westbound lanes of I-90 from just west of Winona Co. Rd. 12 in Dakota to 1.25 miles west of the Minnesota/Wisconsin state line.

Dunn Blacktop Company of Winona is the prime contractor on this $3.8 million project. Construction is expected to be completed in late fall of 2019.

Motorists will encounter single lane traffic, lane changes and short-term ramp closure during the construction work. Traffic delays are expected.

Separate work on I-90 west of this work zone will begin on Friday, Aug. 2 when westbound I-90 motorists will travel on the eastbound lanes between Nodine and Winona in Winona County as construction crews continue repairing a series of bridges along this corridor.
