Work on 28th Street Northeast bridge project in Austin continuing

Work on the 28th Street Northeast bridge project, which will eventually see the replacement of the bridge over Interstate 90 near the Austin Country Club and Gerard Academy, is continuing.  KAUS News spoke with Mike Dougherty, Director of Public Engagement and Communications with MnDOT District 6 in Rochester who gave an update as to how the project is progressing…

Dougherty went on to state that future bridge replacement projects over I-90 in Austin are slated for 2022 and 2023, with MnDOT still looking for feedback from the public concerning the 2023 project involving the replacement of the 4th Street bridge…

The 4th Street bridge will be replaced in 2023, and the interchange reconstructed to improve operations, safety, and pedestrian and bicycle movements.  MnDOT has developed three design options for the interchange, each with unique characteristics, and they are requesting input from the public on important factors to include in the interchange design.  The project will also include the replacement of the I-90 Cedar River Bridges.  More information concerning the bridge projects coming up in Austin in 2022 and 2023 can be found on MnDOT’s website at dot.state.mn.us.
