West Avenue Reconstruction Project to Begin

Wednesday, June 11 2014 2:33 PM

Northdale Construction of Albertville, Minnesota will begin street reconstruction on West Avenue (between College Avenue/7th Street to Maple Street) beginning Monday, June 16th. Crews will be moving on to the project, setting up construction area traffic signs, and detour traffic signs. The street surface will be removed to begin reconstruction of water mains, water services, sanitary sewer mains, sanitary sewer services, storm sewer, aggregate base, concrete curb & gutters, and bituminous pavement as part of the City of Red Wing’s 2014 West Avenue Reconstruction Project. Updated news releases will be issued as the project progresses.  

The entire reconstruction project is expected to be completed by October 18, 2014.

Street closures for through traffic are necessary throughout the various phases of construction on this project and will be signed accordingly. West Avenue traffic will be detoured around the project on to Central Avenue, Grace Street, and Maple Street for the duration of the project. 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 detour and alternate routes whenever possible.
