Hwy 110 between Mendota Heights and Inver Grove Heights: 2017 construction
Project work details
You may have seen the signs Construction on Hwy 110 between Hwy 55/13 in Mendota Heights and I-494 in Inver Grove Heights is set to begin the week of May 15, weather permitting.
Work will significantly impact traffic, and in order to complete the project as quickly as possible, the following work will occur.
Here is what you can expect to see on Monday before the morning rush hour:
* EB Hwy 110 reduced to one lane
The eastbound single lane will move locations throughout the next few weeks starting on the west end of the project near Lexington Avenue. At this time they will be conducting drainage repair, turn lane extensions and median work.
Future traffic impacts
The closure and detour of eastbound Hwy 110 is expected to begin June 12, 2017 (weather permitting). This means all eastbound traffic will be detoured to I-35E, EB I-494, NB Hwy 3 back to Hwy 110. Westbound traffic will be utilizing their usual lanes. The eastbound side of the highway will open about half way through the work around July 24, and westbound Hwy 110 will be closed and detoured at that time.
This one-construction season project is expected to run though the fall of 2017. During that time, there will be pavement, signing and drainage improvements along with construction of a Dakota County pedestrian underpass.
