Eastbound Hwy 101 lane closure scheduled for early Friday


Roseville, Minn. — Motorists will experience delays on eastbound Highway 101 between Zinran Avenue and Highway 13 in Savage beginning at 2:30 a.m. Friday, March 25 as crews construct a temporary barrier to protect the roadway from floodwater from the Minnesota River.


The roadway will be reduced to a single lane intermittently through 5 a.m. Friday, March 25.


This proactive and cost effective measure aims to help keep the roadway open during flood season and with a minimal affect on traffic.
