As construction season gets underway across the metro, crews will start up work once again on the Hastings Bridge Project.

MnDOT crews want to remind drivers in Hastings of a few things for this project. Remember to use the zipper merge if traffic is slow as you approach the work zone. Alls downtown businesses will be accessible throughout the project. Two lanes of Hwy 61 between the bridge and the CP railroad bridge will stay open during rush hours. Finally, the west downtown access ramp will stay closed to through traffic. There’s a detour one block west at Eddy Street.
