Owatonna is a thriving city located on the southernmost edge of the Twin Cities "Metro" area. Riverland has long been a leader in bringing higher education to the Owatonna area. Beginning Spring Semester 2002, Riverland begins a new era of higher education services through the Owatonna College & University Center, a state-of-the-art technology and general education/training center hosting computer training labs, lecture classrooms, interactive video classrooms, meeting rooms and administrative offices. The facility is possible through a joint effort between Riverland, the City of Owatonna, the Owatonna EDA, local business and industry, and partnering colleges and universities.
**Southbound I-35 Bridge Street exit in Owatonna to close for 30 days**
Just a heads-up: Drivers heading southbound on I-35 who use the Bridge Street off-ramp in Owatonna will be detoured for approximately 30 days while the ramp is closed for construction and paving.
The southbound I-35 ramp at Bridge Street (exit 41) will be closed Monday, Sept. 8 as construction begins on the ramp. Drivers will be detoured south to the Hwy 14/I-35 interchange exit 40A for eastbound travel. Follow the route onto Hwy 14 east over I-35 and then immediately take the Minneapolis/St. Paul exit onto northbound I-35 to Bridge Street.
The construction work is expected to be done mid-October.
Meanwhile, the project continues with single-lane, head-to-head traffic as well as southbound traffic off-ramp and on-ramp closures.
