Lane closure scheduled for southbound Hwy 169 Oct. 22


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists in Edina and Bloomington will encounter delays as the right lane of southbound Hwy 169 between Interstate 494 and Anderson Lakes Parkway closes at 9 a.m. Monday, Oct.  22.


The lane will reopen by 11 a.m. that same day.


Part of the Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project, the lane closure is necessary as crews continue reconstruction of Hwy 169. 


At the same time, crews will continue paving the newly constructed lanes of southbound Hwy 169. 


The Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project includes turning the current expressway into a freeway by rebuilding the interchange with six ramps instead of eight. The performance-based design removes traffic signals, reduces congestion and improves safety.


For more information on the Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project, call the Hwy 169/I-494 Project hotline at 1-877-563-4768, e-mail or visit
