Reminder: Westbound Hwy 62 reduced to a single lane June 8-11
Ramp closure will also occur at Penn Avenue


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays on westbound Hwy 62 between Tracy Avenue and Penn Avenue in Edina, Richfield and Minneapolis as the roadway is reduced to a single lane at 8 p.m. Friday, June 8.


In addition to the lane closures, the ramp from westbound Hwy 62 to Penn Avenue will be closed from 8 p.m. June 8 until 6 a.m. Sunday, June 10. Motorists should follow posted detours to access Penn Avenue.


Motorists on westbound Hwy 62 should expect delays and use alternate routes if possible. All lanes will reopen by 6 a.m. Monday, June 11.


Part of the Hwy 62 resurfacing project, the lane closures are needed for crews to work on shoulder widening at Penn Avenue.

The Hwy 62 Better Roads project will resurface the roadway and ramps to create a smoother roadway and extend the lifespan of the pavement. The project will also upgrade accessibility for pedestrians and revise traffic signals at four interchanges. The entire project is expected to be completed by early August.
