SAUK CENTRE, MN (KNSI) - Motorists traveling in Sauk Centre will see some temporary traffic changes beginning today, as crews do maintenance work on the Highway 71 bridge that spans Interstate 94.

The left turn lane from northbound Highway 71 to westbound I-94 will be closed, with a detour in place. There will also be lane shifts on the Highway 71 bridge and intermittent lane closures on the Interstate throughout the project.

Crews will repair the bridge deck, replace the guard rail and repair the approaches to the Highway 71 bridge. The project will be finished by late September--weather permitting.
