The City of Red Wing Public Works Department will be closing a portion of East 5th Street on Thursday, April 17, 2014 due to high water levels. The area affected is the portion that runs beneath the railroad bridge on East 5th Street. Access will be prohibited for the duration of this closure. Access to the Izaak Walton League Clubhouse or the City Lab will be limited to Levee Road.
This closure is expected to last approximately one week, reopening as soon as the water recedes and levels return to normal. Traffic control will be in place. Drivers are encouraged to avoid this area.
City crews appreciate the cooperation and patience of neighbors, drivers and pedestrians during this time of inconvenience. Motorists are encouraged to stay alert and drive carefully through all work zones and use alternate routes whenever possible.
