Lane and ramp closures at Hwy 169/I-494 occur nightly Sept. 18-20

 

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays as nightly ramp and lane closures occur at the Hwy 169/I-494 interchange in Bloomington, Edina and Eden Prairie Sept. 18-20.

 

The loop ramp from northbound Hwy 169 to westbound I-494 will close nightly at 10 p.m. During the closure, access from Hwy 169 to westbound I-494 will be available via Hwy 212. 

 

In addition, lane closures on both directions of Hwy 169 between I-494 and Anderson Lakes Parkway will begin at 7 p.m. each night. 

 

The restrictions are necessary as crews continue painting the new flyover bridges from westbound I-494 to northbound and southbound Hwy 169. The loop ramp and all lanes will reopen at 5 a.m. each day following the closures.

 

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 Hwy169-I494@rranow.com or visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/169/.
