Elton Hills Drive Bridge

Construction began in October 2021 and last through June 30, 2022. The closure will impact the bridge in both directions. There will be no disruption or closures of driveways used for business. Working hours for the contractor will be approximately 6:00 AM to 5:00 PM Monday through Friday.  As of mid-November, the bridge over the Zumbro River has been removed and reconstruction work is underway.

 The following impacts to travel continue to be in place until completion of the project:

  • Elton Hills Drive is closed at the bridge.
  • Vehicle traffic is being detoured to 13th Street NW via 3rd Avenue NW and Broadway Avenue North.
  • Pedestrian and cyclists are being detoured to the pedestrian bridge north of Elton Hills Drive via sidewalks along West River Parkway NW and the Zumbro North Trail.

Construction update:

Phase one of the North Broadway Reconstruction project has been completed and the street is open in both directions from Silver Lake Bridge to Civic Center Drive. Phase two of the project will resume in early spring of 2022. During that part of the project, construction will focus on the side streets adjacent to North Broadway. The project has an expected completion date of September 2022.

Rochester Public Transit:

  • As of the end of November, Rochester Public Transit has ended detours on Routes 101, 102, 505, and 21, and returned to normal operations on North Broadway. Routes on North Broadway will continue follow the current schedule, but bus stop locations have been adjusted to help the routes perform better.
