DRESBACH, Minnesota (WXOW) – Motorists will encounter new traffic patterns on Interstate 90 on the Wisconsin side of the Dresbach Bridge, beginning Tuesday (06/25), according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Both directions of traffic were previously routed on one eastbound and one westbound lane. The new traffic pattern will route motorists on both westbound lanes. The same traffic switch will occur on the Minnesota side of the Dresbach Bridge beginning Thursday (06/27), weather permitting.
This $187.5 million project is a cooperative effort between the Minnesota and Wisconsin departments of Transportation and will continue through 2016. The project includes constructing a new I-90 crossing over the Mississippi River and reconstructing the Highway 61/14 and I-90 interchange.
The new I-90 river crossing will meet current structural and geometric standards, and the new interchange will improve traffic safety, capacity and access on and between Highway 61/14 and I-90.
