Eisenhower Bridge inspection starts Monday
Motorists traveling on Highway 63 over the Mississippi River in Red Wing will encounter temporary lane closures and delays beginning Tuesday May 7 as crews conduct an annual bridge inspection.
The equipment needed to conduct the inspection requires a lane closure and traffic will be reduced to a single lane controlled by flaggers from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Both lanes will be open each evening after the inspectors have completed their work.
The lane closure will remain in effect through Thursday May 9, weather permitting.
Routine inspections of the Eisenhower Bridge and other Mississippi River bridges are conducted annually; an in-depth inspection takes place once every other year.
