Hwy 36/Hilton Trail improvement project begins March 18


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The Hwy 36/Hilton Trail improvement project, taking between I-694 and just east of Demontreville Trail North in Lake Elmo, Pine springs and Grant, is scheduled to start Monday, March 18. 

Work will include the replacement of the Hwy 36/Hilton Trail signalized intersection with a grade-separated diamond interchange.  In addition, the Hwy 36/Demontreville Trail intersection will be converted to a ¾ intersection, and a reduced conflict intersection will be built just east of the intersection. The median crossing at the Highlands Trail intersection will be closed, and the north frontage road (60th Street) will be extended over the Gateway Trail.

This project will improve safety and efficiency on Hwy 36, Hilton Trail, Highlands Trail and Demontreville Trail, while reducing the amount of through-traffic traveling through residential areas.

The majority of the project is expected to be complete by mid-November.  Project clean-up and remaining restoration and maintenance work may carry over into spring 2014.
