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


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.
