The Minnesota Department of Transportation says an incident at the site of a road construction project near Rochester on Thursday week should serve as a reminder of the dangers of ignoring barricades and road closed signs.
On Sunday the Scott County Sheriff's office closed the bridge over the Minnesota River in Jordan. They also announced that the Minnesota Department of Transportation would close the Highway 41 Minnesota River bridge at 9 a.m. Tuesday due to flooding.
Here is the news that most people were expecting. For the third weekend in a row, to wrap up their work on the Irene Hixon Whitney Pedestrian Bridge, I-94 is closing from I-394 to I-35W in Minneapolis. Traffic will be diverted to I-694, I-35W, and Highway 280.
I-94 will be closed this weekend and for two additional weekends after as the painting of the Whitney pedestrian bridge near the Minneapolis Sculpture Garden takes place. That's just the tip of the construction iceberg.
