Highway 76 Detour Starts Tuesday for Bridge Project North of Houston
Motorists on Highway 76 will see a detour north of Houston starting on Tuesday, September 6th.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation said crews will repair two bridges on Highway 76 over Money Creek, north of Houston. The work includes resurfacing the concrete bridge deck. Construction is scheduled until early October.
The bridge at milepost 26.34, south of Money Creek will be closed and detoured.
Motorists traveling north on Highway 76 will go west on Highway 16, then north on Highway 43 towards Rushford and then go east on County Road 27 towards Money Creek which turns into County Road 26 to rejoin Highway 76.
Motorists traveling south on Highway 76 will take County Road 26/27 to Rushford, then go south on Highway 43 and turn east onto Highway 16 towards Houston to rejoin Highway 76.
The second bridge being resurfaced is 1.62 miles north of the first one at milepost 27.96.
The bridge will remain open with one lane of traffic going through at a time with signals directing traffic.
There is no thru traffic between the two bridges, but residents located between them can access their homes as well as delivery services.
