Multiple Interstate 90 projects impact traffic in SW Minnesota
I-90 traffic maintained two-way, on two lanes; periodic ramp closures expected
Interstate 90 travelers are advised of “construction ahead” in southwestern Minnesota as projects begin in May and reach into five counties for the majority of the construction season.
I-90 traffic will be carried two-way on two lanes; however, construction staging will dictate ramp closures. Motorists are advised to check www.511mn.org before they travel for up-to-date ramp closures and corresponding detours.
Among the I-90 projects planned this summer is an eastbound concrete overlay between Adrian and Rushmore
The project will be from June 1 through October, weather permitting.
Access to Adrian at State Highway 91 will remain open in both directions.
The Nobles County Road 13 eastbound ramp will be closed, as will the eastbound rest area at Adrian.
All of this summer’s I-90 construction projects can be reviewed at www.dot.state.mn.us/d7/projects/I90preserve/
Constructed in the 1970s, the I-90 pavements are nearing the end of their service life.
MnDOT is investing $50 million in savings and $30 million of District 7 funds over the next few years into the rural interstate system to improve performance.
The $80 million investment will improve 120 miles of some of the poorest interstate pavements and an additional $20 million will be invested to repair the bridges.
