I-94 St. Paul to Maplewood: 2016-17 construction

Overnight I-94 east metro lane closures set to begin March 31
Roadwork on I-94 between St. Paul and Maplewood is scheduled to restart this Fri, March 31, and thats no April Fools joke.
If the weather holds up, actual construction isnt expected to begin until April 10. However, some temporary lane closures are needed so crews can set up the traffic pattern that will be in place through mid-summer 2017.
Overnight on Fri, March 31
* EB I-94 from Mounds Blvd. to McKnight Rd. will be *reduced to two lanes* of traffic from 8 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning
* WB I-94 from the I-694/I-494 interchange to Hwy 61 will be *reduced to two lanes* of traffic from 7 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning
Then over the next week, motorists can expect alternating lane closures each day during the overnight hours on both EB and WB I-94 from Mounds Blvd. to the I-694/I-494 interchange.

Project work resumes on I-35W at Co Rd H and Hwy 10 in Arden Hills, New Brighton on April 3

County Road H over I-35W in Mounds View: 2016-2017 construction

Project work details
Ramp fromwestbound Hwy 10 to northbound I-35W in Arden Hills closes Mon, April 3
As work continues on two new ramps at the south junction of Hwy 10 and I-35W in Arden Hills, we will close the ramp from westbound Hwy 10 to northbound I-35W beginning at 9 a.m. Mon, April 3. The ramp will remain closed and detoured through the end of August.
The ramp, located on the Hwy 10 diagonal between I-694 and I-35W, will close so construction crews can finish building a new ramp to carry that traffic over a second ramp that will be built this year. The second ramp will allow northbound I-35W traffic to reach Co Rd H. It also will provide direct access to the Rice Creek Commons [ http://www.ricecreekcommons.com/?utm_content=&utm_medium=email&utm_name=&utm_source=govdelivery&utm_term= ] development on the site of the former Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP).
During the summer-long closure, you will need to detour west on I-694 to reach northbound I-35W. If you are traveling west on Co Rd 96, you will have to continue westbound past the Hwy 10 ramp to reach I-35W.
Project work completed in 2016
Reconstruction of the interchange at I-35W and Co Rd H was completed in the fall of 2016 and features roundabouts at each end of the new Co Rd H bridge. Co Rd H now includes a new wider bridge overI-35Wwith two traffic lanes in each direction and a regional trail for bicycles and pedestrians.

Ramp closures will start Hwy 58 bri dge replacement in Zumbrota April 10

AHwy 52/Hwy 58 interchange in Zumbrota: 2017-2018 construction

Ramp closures will start Hwy 58 bridge replacement in Zumbrota April 10
Construction season is about to begin and we wanted to be sure you were aware of a project along Highway 52 at Zumbrota that might affect your travels beginning in April.
Motorists using the northbound Highway 52 exit at Highway 58 in Zumbrota will be detoured beginning April 10 for approximately three weeks, while crews prepare a bypass road at the interchange.
The work is the start of the replacement of the Highway 58 bridge over Highway 52. The project will also improve connections for pedestrians and bicyclists across the bridge, traffic flow off of Hwy 52 and the length of the uphill acceleration lane onto southbound Highway 52.
The construction that begins in April will require motorists seeking to exit northbound Highway 52 onto Highway 58 or the roadways west of the interchange to travel north to the Highway 60 west exit. Motorists should follow detour signs during this phase. Motorists seeking to access the west side of the Highway 58 interchange will return to Highway 52 and take the southbound lanes to the exit at Highway 58. This will also be the detour route for Hwy 58 north access except for a short period of time.
Additional ramp closures and detours are planned during the project, which is expected to open the new bridge for traffic in the fall.
Hoffman Construction Company of Black River Falls, Wis., is the prime contractor for the $5.6 million project.

Westbound Lowry Hill Tunnel in Minneapolis reduced to single lane beginning Mar. 27

I-94 between Minneapolis and Brooklyn Center: 2017 construction

Lane closure details
Motorists will see lane reductions overnight while crews remove concrete in the westbound Lowry Tunnel on I-94 in Minneapolis.
Starting Monday, March 27, the westbound half of the Lowry Tunnel will be reduced to two lanes at 8 p.m. and to one lane by 10 p.m. The tunnel should reopen daily by 6 a.m. These restrictions could be in place through Thu, Mar. 30.
Restrictions also will remain on the eastbound side of the Lowry Tunnel through Sunday and potentially Monday, from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. If eastbound side work is required Monday, it should be no more than an hour or two and then will shift to the westbound side. While crews work in the eastbound tunnel, the eastbound I-394 ramp to eastbound I-94 will be closed from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m.
The concrete removal in the tunnel is expected to be done by the end of next week.
This work is in preparation to shift both directions of traffic into one side of the tunnel. Traffic will be shifted in mid- to late-May while bridge and tunnel work requires crews to close the westbound tunnel.
In addition to the tunnel work, on Mon, March 27, the left lane of eastbound I-94 will close from I-694 in Brooklyn Center to Seventh St. in Minneapolis. Traffic will eventually be reduced to two lanes in both directions of I-94 through the fall.

I-94 construction resumes early-April

– I-94 St. Paul to Maplewood: 2016-17 construction

Project details
Road crews on I-94 in the east metro are set to begin their second construction season in just a few short weeks.
If youre traveling on I-94 between St. Paul and Maplewood, youll encounter major traffic changes on the interstate while the project work is going on.
Motorists should expect lane restrictions in both directions, traffic delays, and temporary exit/entrance ramp closures. Drivers will have at least two travel lanes in each direction during construction.
Theres a lot of work to do and itll be a tight schedule, but crews expect to complete the work by late-fall.
To ease some of the traffic congestion, crews will use a moveable barrier and designated lanes to move vehicles through the construction zone during the work.
Plan ahead

Open house: Hwy 10 from Hwy 59 to Summit Avenue

MnDOT logo D4 – Hwy 10 from Hwy 59 to Summit Ave in Detroit Lakes: 2017 construction

Open house: Hwy 10 from Hwy 59 to Summit Avenue
We have pulled the 2015-2016 Hwy 10 / Hwy 59 frontage road email list out of the archive to let you know about an open house for another project affecting the west side of Detroit Lakes this year.
Starting in mid-April, crews will be working on Hwy 10 between Hwy 59 and Summit Ave.
They will replace the eastbound Highway 10 bridge over the CP Railway line and place concrete in both directions on Highway 10 between Highway 59 and Summit Avenue.
Placing concrete in this section will provide a long-term fix, but the project will result in significant traffic disruptions, particularly during work near Highway 59 and near Summit Avenue.
Youre invited to learn more about the project on Thursday, April 6, from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the MnDOT District 4 office, 1000 Highway 10 West, Detroit Lakes. The meeting is an opportunity to learn about the project timeline and construction staging.

Southwest and west central MN has been awarded $3.3 million dollars from the Highway Safety Improvement Program to construct two Reduced Conflict Intersections. The RCIs will be constructed in the Marshall area at the intersections of Hwy 23 and Lyon Street and Hwy 23 and Lyon CR 7.
Both RCIs were recommendations from the Hwy 23 Marshall Area Safety Assessment City of Marshall, Marshall Area Transportation Group and Lyon County partnered with SRF Consulting Group to develop a common vision and guidance for managing the Hwy 23 corridor now and into the future. RCIs were recommended at Hwy 23 and Lyon Street and Hwy 23 and CR 7.
