I-90 lanes closed to finish Dakota-Wisconsin line project

Wisconsin rated among worst states for driving

DAKOTA, Minn. (WKBT) – Motorists on Interstate 90 will encounter lane closures between Dakota and the Dresbach Bridge at the Minnesota/Wisconsin state line for about two weeks as crews wrap up work on a paving project, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Traffic will be reduced to single lanes in both directions between Exit 270 at Dakota and Exit 275 at La Crescent.
Crews will be finishing guardrail and striping the road, which was paved last fall. Crews ran out of time to finish the project before winter arrived. Work is expected to be completed by May 22.
Dunn Blacktop Co. of Winona is the prime contractor on this $3.8 million project.
MnDOT road work has been identified as a critical service in Gov. Tim Walz’s Stay at Home executive order. Following guidance from state and federal health officials and to prevent further spread of COVID-19 crews will maintain social distancing practices while working.
