I-110 highrise to close late Tuesday night

The I-110 highrise will close to traffic Tuesday night beginning at 11 so that MDOT crews can conduct roadway repairs.

“Work on the drawbridge is expected to take only a few hours to complete,” Transportation Commissioner Tom King said.  “No traffic will be allowed on the bridge to maintain the safety of workers and motorists.”

Barricades will be set up at 1-110 and U.S. 90 and at on-ramps at Division Street and Bayview Avenue.  Police officers will also be in the area to assist with traffic during the repairs.

Repairs are expected to be complete before Wednesday morning commuter traffic, MDOT says.
