Interstate 90 motorists will be detoured 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Wednesday, May 26 near the Stewartville exit while construction crews pour concrete for the Hwy 63 southbound bridge over the highway, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Unlike past detours, this detour will occur during daytime hours. During the I-90 detour, westbound motorists will exit I-90 at Hwy 63 northbound (Exit 209), proceed north to the Hwy 30 west exit at the Rochester International Airport, return to Hwy 63 going southbound and follow to I-90 where it rejoins the highway. Eastbound motorists will exit I-90 at High Forest (Exit 205), follow Olmsted County Road 6 east into Stewartville, then north on Hwy 63 to connect again with I-90.
During the two-year construction project both Hwy 63 bridges will be replaced, Hwy 30 west rerouted, some I-90 exit ramps will be added or realigned and the access to 90th Street SE will be closed and rerouted.
