MANKATO — Weather permitting, construction on eastbound and westbound Interstate 90 from east of Beaver Creek to the South Dakota border will begin, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

During the first stage of construction, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction in the westbound lanes. The eastbound on and off ramps at Minnesota 23 will be closed. The eastbound Beaver Creek Rest Area located west of the South Dakota border will also be closed during this stage. Travel information will be available at the eastbound Adrian Rest Area. This first stage of construction is anticipated to last until early August.

During the second stage of construction, traffic will be reduced to a single lane in each direction in the eastbound lanes from the South Dakota border to Rock County 11. Construction will require on and off ramp closures on westbound I-90 at Minnesota 23 during this stage. On and off ramp closures will also be required at Rock County 6 for approximately one week for paving. The timing of the one-week ramp closures is yet to be determined, however, the ramps will be open during the annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally.

During the final stage of construction, traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction from the South Dakota border to east of Luverne.

Construction on I-90 is expected to be complete in November, weather permitting. The project includes a concrete pavement overlay on the eastbound and westbound lanes and reconstruction of shoulders. The project also includes the extension of outside ramp shoulders for truck parking, guardrail repair and improved drainage with the cleaning, repair and replacement of culverts and pipes.
