COLD SPRING -- Expect some delays on eastbound Highway 23 in Cold Spring this week.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is reducing the eastbound direction of Highway 23 to a single lane starting today.

The lane closures are necessary so crews can repair the drainage infrastructure beneath the roadway.

The work is taking place between Second Avenue South and Chapel Street.

All eastbound lanes are expected to open by 6:00 p.m. Thursday.
