Highway 79 near Evansville to close overnight  Aug. 7 - 8

Minnesota Highway 79 under Interstate 94 near Evansville will close to all traffic the nights of Monday, Aug. 7 and Tuesday, Aug. 8.

The highway closure is necessary so crews can remove the eastbound Interstate 94 bridge deck over the roadway. The highway will close at 9 p.m. each evening and will reopen by 6 a.m. the next morning.

Detours will direct traffic around the closure. The interstate ramps at Highway 79 and I-94 will remain open.

The work is part of the I-94 resurfacing and bridge deck replacement project underway between the Evansville and Garfield exits.
