Reminder Notice: Northbound Hwy 100 closes Aug. 18-20
Innovative approach to roadway maintenance aims to lessen number, duration of lane closures

 

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience a closure and detour on northbound Hwy 100 between Hwy 62 and Interstate 394 as the roadway closes at 5 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 18.

 

During the closure, a posted detour will direct motorists to use westbound Hwy 62, northbound Hwy 169 and eastbound I-394 to access northbound Hwy 100.

 

The closure is needed for a full suite of area maintenance work, and the roadway is scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 20.

 

During the closure, MnDOT Maintenance crews will conduct a full complement of functions, including the inspection of all overhead bridges, performing of bridge deck repair on all Hwy 100 bridges spanning local roadways, performing of crack sealing and joint repairs, inspection and repair of expansion joints, mill and patch roadway segments, make signage repairs, refresh pavement markings, inspect and repair electrical systems, clearing and repair of drainage structures, repair guardrail, and sweeping roadways and removal of debris, foliage and weed growth where necessary.

 

The goal of this overall approach is to lessen the number of non-rush hour lane closures needed within this segment of roadway for the summer season and to be more efficient with the resources at MnDOT’s disposal.

 

A closure of southbound Hwy 100 between the same two points is anticipated the following weekend, Aug. 25-27, and updates will be made in advance of the closure. The work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled in the case of inclement weather.
