NODINE, Minn. – The Interstate 90 detour near Nodine in Winona County ended Tuesday, October 21 as the demolition of the old Winona County Road 12 Bridge was completed, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Remaining work on the project includes removing the bypass, lighting, storm sewer work and guardrail installation. Estimated project completion is Nov. 12, weather permitting.

Mathiowetz Construction Co., is the prime contractor on this $8.9 million project. During construction, crews replaced the Winona County Road 12 Bridge over I-90 at the Nodine exit.
