Published 7:14 pm Friday, October 18, 2019

The concrete overlay project on westbound Interstate 90 from Freeborn County Road 46 to Minnesota Highway 13 is complete, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Ulland Brothers Inc., a MnDOT contractor, paved a 12-mile stretch of the westbound lanes with concrete in a process called an unbonded concrete overlay.

According to a press release, the project will provide a smoother ride for motorists and extend the lifespan of the road. The $17.2 million concrete paving project included the replacement of the westbound bridge deck over County Road 46.
