Motorists on Highway 42 in Eyota to I-90 will be detoured starting Monday.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation motorists on Highway 42 from Eyota to I-90 will be detoured for approximately three weeks while crew repair portions of the concrete highway pavement.

The repairs will close the road to through traffic starting Monday, June 17th, but local traffic will be open in a single lane for businesses and residents who live along the highway. Motorists should be aware that there will be open portions in the road where the concrete is removed or areas where concrete has just been poured.

The detour for motorists using Highway 42 southbound is Highway 14 east to Dover, south on Olmsted County Road 10 to Interstate 90. The northbound Highway 42 detour is the reverse route. The construction work is expected to be completed in early July.
