New Interstate 90 bridge at Turtle Creek now open

AUSTIN, Minn. (KTTC-DT) -- Travel just got a little easier in Austin.  According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the new Interstate 90 eastbound Turtle Creek bridge is now open to traffic.  The bridge had been reduced to a single lane in each direction since March.

The $12.8 million project is a part of a massive bridge reconstruction project in Mower County.  4 bridges are getting a complete makeover.  The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of October, weather permitting.

A portion of the $12.8 million project is being funded from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 and provides increased jobs throughout construction.
