[UPDATE] Lane restrictions have been postponed and may not be required for this project. All lanes will remain open on Highway 61/London Road near Lester River Bridge until further notice.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reminding drivers of daytime lane closures that start Wednesday, September 26th and continue through Friday, October 19th on Highway 61 and London Road near the Lester River Bridge.

Flaggers will control traffic.  Both lanes will reopen each evening at dusk.  Crews will be working beneath the bridge using bridge access equipment mounted to a truck parked on top of the bridge.

This work will complete the Lester River Bridge rehabilitation project that began in 2010. The project, which included approach grading and new pavement, was done to help maintain and preserve the historic bridge.
