The Minnesota Department of Transportation announced this week that eastbound Interstate 90 motorists who use the 28th St. NE exit on Austin’s east side will be detoured for approximately two weeks beginning Aug. 9, so the ramp can be reconstructed.
The westbound off-ramps and on-ramps will remain open as will the eastbound on-ramp. Each of those ramps will have brief closures in the future, but only for approximately a day or two. The detour for eastbound 28th St. NE off-ramp closure is eastbound I-90 to Exit 183, turn south, or right on Hwy 56 and then west, or right on 215th St.
MnDOT officials stated that the detour is expected to last approximately two weeks.
