Be aware of Hastings bridge delays this week
HASTINGS--Utility work this Wednesday and Thursday may cause traffic delays on the Hastings (Minn.) bridge, southwest of Prescott.
The work will restrict traffic to a single lane in both directions of Minn. Hwy. 61 between Fourth Street and Hwy. 10 between 9 p.m. and 5 a.m. each day.
Motorists are asked to please remember to be considerate of their fellow drivers, as well as the flaggers who will direct traffic.
The City of Hastings remains open during construction--all downtown businesses and other local destinations are accessible via the current bridge.
With the curing process for the bridge deck complete, crews will now begin applying a special surfacing coat.
Two lanes of traffic--one in each direction--are expected to be routed to the new bridge in early to mid-June.
