MnDOT starts an inspection of the Highway 43 Bridge in Winona on June 2.
WINONA, Minn. (WXOW) - Drivers crossing three Mississippi River bridges between Wisconsin and Minnesota may see delays during scheduled inspections starting in June.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation said crews plan on starting at 8:00 a.m. June 2, on the Highway 43 bridge in Winona. Following that, the bridge in Wabasha is up for inspection. Once done, inspectors move to Red Wing to check the bridge there.
A MnDOT statement said that these types of inspections and evaluations are done every two years. Each inspection can take up to week to do.
On all three projects, crews will be on the bridge from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. each day.
While the inspections are under way, traffic will be down to one lane on the bridges. Flaggers will help control traffic in both directions across the bridges.
MnDOT asks drivers to slow down as they pass through the inspection sites.
