Published 1:10pm Wednesday, November 28, 2012

Motorists will experience lanes closures on southbound Minnesota Highway 13 near Albert Lea beginning Wednesday as crews repair a beam on the Interstate 90 bridge over the highway.

The beam repair will be completed by Tuesday, weather permitting.

The beam was damaged after a truck hauling farm equipment hit the I-90 bridge. Crews will use a heat straightening method to repair the damaged beam.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation urges motorists to always drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
