Altura-Elba section of Co. Road 26 to close for months


(6/16/2021)

County Road 26, between County Road 37 west of Altura and Highway 74 in Elba, will be closed to through traffic beginning at 7 a.m. on June 21 for a bridge replacement project.

The detour route will send traffic south to Highway 14 — along county roads 33, 119, and 39 — before routing it back north. The closure is anticipated to last through mid-September.

The Winona County Highway Department reminds motorists entering work zones that safety is the responsibility of all:

•    Slow down when approaching every work zone, then navigate through with care and caution.

•    Stay alert; work zones constantly change.

•     Watch for workers and slow moving equipment.

•    Obey posted speed limits. Fine for a violation in a work zone is $300.

•    Minimize distractions behind the wheel.

•    Be patient; expect delays, especially during peak travel times.
