Brief detour Aug. 6-7 for I-90 bridge replacement near Nodine in Winona County

NODINE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a short detour on Interstate 90 near Nodine in Winona County for two days beginning Aug. 6 as crews set beams on the new bridge over the interstate, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Eastbound lanes will be closed one day and westbound lanes will be closed the other day on I-90 under the Winona County Road 12 Bridge at Exit 267 near Nodine. It will be determined which lanes close first by Aug. 5. Traffic will be detoured up the ramp of Exit 267 and back down the ramp to I-90. There will be a traffic signal at the top of the ramp. Vehicles will be able to cross the existing bridge.

Mathiowetz Construction Co., is the prime contractor on this $8.9 million project. During construction, crews are replacing the Winona County Road 12 Bridge over I-90 at the Nodine exit. The new bridge is being built adjacent to the current bridge, so it will remain open through much of the construction work. The westbound I-90 entrance ramp is being extended, and a right-turn lane to eastbound I-90 entrance ramp is being built. Work is expected to be complete in November.

Further east, the I-90 eastbound bridge over Dakota Valley Drive is being replaced. Expect reduced speeds in the work zone.
