Stewartville, MN (KROC AM News) - A traffic detour in the Stewartville area scheduled for Friday has been postponed because of rainy weather.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation had scheduled a concrete pour Friday at the Highway 63/I-90 bridge project that would have affected motorists traveling on the interstate.

The concrete pour for the northbound bridge is now scheduled to take place Saturday from 6:00 AM - 2:00 PM. 

MnDOT says the detour will require westbound motorists to exit I-90 at Hwy 52 (Exit 218) north to Rochester, Hwy 63 south to I-90 where it rejoins the highway. Eastbound motorists will exit I-90 at High Forest (Exit 205) follow Olmsted County Road 6 east into Stewartville, then north on Hwy 63 to connect again with I-90.

Meanwhile, eastbound I-90 motorists who want to travel north on Hwy 63 continue to be detoured at Exit 205, cross the highway and follow Olmsted County Road 6 west a short distance to Olmsted County Road 8 north. Follow Olmsted 8 to Olmsted County Road 16 east to Hwy 63 near Rochester International Airport. The ramp for eastbound I-90 to southbound Hwy 63 remains open at Exit 209A at Stewartville.

Motorists should also be aware of changes that affect Olmsted 8 and Hwy 30:

  •       Stop sign changes at Hwy 30/ Olmsted 8 – the intersection at Hwy 30 and Olmsted 8 will be changed. Motorists on Hwy 30 will need to stop at a stop sign before turning north or south onto Olmsted 8. Motorists on Olmsted 8 will not have a stop sign.
  •       Hwy 30 detour – the intersection of Hwy 30 west and Hwy 63 is closed and rerouted. Hwy 63 motorists who want to access Hwy 30 west of Hwy 63 will exit at Olmsted County Road 16, (the interchange that serves Rochester International Airport), travel west to Olmsted 8 south to Hwy 30 west.
