Mora residents and area drivers will encounter reduced speeds and lane closures as work begins next week to replace the Snake River bridge.
The $5.8 million project will reconstruct a wider bridge, which includes a new multi-use trail along the west side from Frontage Road that connects to South Union Street. The project will also improve pedestrian crossing at Division Street and storm water drainage to the Snake River.
Reduced speeds and lane closures are expected to begin on Monday, May 9. Oversize loads will not be permitted to enter the work zone and pedestrian traffic will not be allowed to pass through the construction area and will need to seek a different route.
For more information and detours, you can check out the project page on the Minnesota Department of transportation website. The project is expected to be completed by November.
