Drivers can expect daytime closures along Highway 2 as work crews with the Wisconsin Central Ltd. (CN Railroad) perform repairs on the span that crosses about 1/5 of a mile west of State Highway 194 and US Highway 2 in Solway Township, Saginaw.  The daytime closures are expected to be in effect between 7:00 AM and 5:00 PM each day for one week - January 8 through January 15.  The bridge will not be closed on the weekend during this time period.

As with any road construction work, the projects' timeline is fluid; a variety of factors could affect the projected completion time - from weather to unforeseen circumstances.

While not involved directly in the project, officials with the Minnesota Department of Transportation are working with the CN Railroad to get information about the closure disseminated to the general public.  For more details, people are invited to contact CN directly:  1-888-888-5909.  CN's 24-hour Emergency Contact Number is 1-800-465-9239.
