Crews continue their work on replacing the Steele County Road 18 bridge south of Owatonna over the interstate. Motorists traveling northbound on I-35 will be encountering a 6 hour detour on Thursday. Crews will be working on setting in bridge beams for the bridge which cause traffic to be re routed starting at 8PM Thursday May 10 till 2AM on Friday, May 11.

Motorists will be detoured to Exit 26 to Highway 30 outside Ellendale and then east to County Road 45 where you will travel north to Highway 14 south of Owatonna and then rejoin I-35. A reminder that those who wish to continue north on I-35 from Highway 14 east there is an additional detour to take. Traveling westbound on Highway14 you will need to detour through the interchange loops at I-35 by taking the southbound I-35 ramp to the eastbound Highway 14 ramp and then onto the northbound I-35 ramp.

It looks like there were at least several automobiles made right here in Owatonna prior to 1900. Read more here.
