Southbound Hwy 169 daytime lane closure scheduled for today


ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists in Edina, Eden Prairie and Bloomington will experience possible delays as lane closures continue on southbound Highway 169 between I-494 and Anderson Lakes Parkway at at 9 a.m. today.


The lane is scheduled to reopen by Noon today.


The closure is necessary as crews install a guardrail along Highway 169 as part of the Highway 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project.


The Highway 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 Highway 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project, call the Highway 169/I-494 Project hotline at 1-877-563-4768, e-mail or visit
