Temporary Hwy 63 traffic signal removal planned Aug. 26 at north end of Stewartville
STEWARTVILLE, Minn. – A temporary Hwy 63 traffic signal will be removed on the north end of Stewartville at Schumann Drive NE on Aug. 26 as the construction project at the Interstate 90 interchange reaches completion, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
The traffic signal was temporarily placed at the intersection because of changes in Hwy 63 traffic related to construction. Now that the project is wrapping up, the signal will be removed. The project should be complete on Aug. 27.
During the two-year construction project both Hwy 63 bridges over I-90 were replaced, the Hwy 30 west intersection with Hwy 63 was closed and rerouted, an I-90 exit ramp was added or another was realigned. Access to 90th Street SE was closed and rerouted.

- Go hands-free and minimize other distractions (e.g., don’t eat or drink while driving
- Follow posted speed limits; the fine for speeding in a work zone is $300
- Avoid making lane changes within work zones
