Jackson County Bridge Work

Jackson County Bridge Work

Jackson, MN (KICD) — Interstate 90 motorists in southwestern Minnesota are advised of a traffic change on I-90 in the Jackson area later next week, as construction work shifts from bridges in the westbound direction to eastbound bridges.

On or after Wednesday, August 20th, two-lane two-way traffic will be shifted from the eastbound lanes of I-90 to the westbound lanes with reduced speeds until late-September. A posted detour route will be placed for eastbound I-90 traffic for access to Highway 71 and the City of Jackson. This traffic will be routed off I-90 at Highway 86 and follow a posted detour (Jackson County Road 34) into Jackson.

The project includes work on four bridges.. Crews will repair decks, rails, approach panels, drainage and paint the steel to keep them in good condition and improve the ride for the motorists. Guardrail improvements will also be made.

PCI Roads of St. Michael was awarded the project with a bid of $3.9 million.
