A New Lane Closure Begins Monday on I-90 Near Rochester
Rochester, MN (KROC-AM News) - Motorists are being advised that traffic on westbound I-90 southwest of Rochester will be restricted to a single lane beginning on Monday.
The new restriction involves a section of the freeway west of Stewartville near Olmsted County Road 6 for a repaving and bridger pier project. The Minnesota Department of Transportation also reminds travelers that eastbound I-90 is already restricted to a single lane from west of Mower County Road 15 to east of Olmsted County Road 6.
MnDOT has also established a detour to keep traffic off the eastbound entrance ramp to I-90 at County Road 6. It directs traffic east on County Road 6 into Stewartville and back to I-90 by traveling north on Highway 63.
A news release indicates the westbound lane closure on I-90 will last about 3 weeks. Eastbound traffic on the freeway will continue to be restricted to a single lane into late August.
