I-90 lane closures in place between Dakota and state line as project wraps up

DAKOTA, Minn. – Interstate 90 motorists will encounter lane closures for approximately two weeks between Dakota and the Dresbach Bridge at the Minnesota/Wisconsin state line as crews wrap up work on a paving project, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Traffic will be reduced to single lanes in both directions between Exit 270 at Dakota and Exit 275 at La Crescent. Crews will be finishing guardrail and then striping the road, which was paved last fall. Crews ran out of time to finish the work in 2019 before winter arrived. Work is expected to be complete by May 22.

Dunn Blacktop Company of Winona is the prime contractor on this $3.8 million project.

MnDOT road work has been identified as a critical service in Gov. Tim Walz’s Stay at Home executive order. Following guidance from state and federal health officials, and to prevent further spread of COVID-19, crews will maintain social distancing practices while working.
