(October 30, 2012, Red Wing, Minn.) – Beginning on November 5, 2012, Minnowa Construction, Inc. of Harmony, Minnesota will be removing and replacing the bridge that is currently closed at the north end of Old Highway 19 (east of Marco Auto). Old Highway 19 will be closed to thru traffic.  Property owners may access their properties from the south intersection of Old Highway 19 with State Highway 19.  The north intersection of Old Highway 19 with State Highway 19 will remain open for access to Marco Auto only.

This phase of construction is anticipated to take approximately one month to complete, at which time the road will be reopened for through traffic.  Future phases of this project include removal and replacement of the other bridges on Old Highway 19 in 2013.  The complete bridge construction and road paving project is expected to be completed by June 29, 2013.


Motorists are encouraged to stay alert and drive carefully through all work zones and use alternate routes whenever possible.
