Closure of local road near Chanhassen to begin July 25
Lone Cedar Lane access to Hwy 5 to close


(Roseville, Minn.)-  Motorists using Lone Cedar Lane to access Hwy 5 will encounter a detour and possible delays when the road closes beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, July 25.


Access to Hwy 5 will close so crews can continue resurfacing the road and construct a pedestrian underpass near Minnewashta Parkway.  A signed detour will direct motorists to use Hwy 7 to bypass the closure. The road is scheduled to reopen by August 14.


The work is part of a larger project to improve Hwy 5 between Victoria and Chanhassen. To sign up for the project’s email updates or for more information visit the project’s web site at


When complete the project will result in a smoother ride, reconstruct a section of Hwy 5 prone to sinking and heaving, improve pedestrian and trail facilities and improve the overall efficiency of Hwy 5.
