Hwy 36/English Street improvement project begins March 11


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The Hwy 36/English Street improvement project, between Hazelwood Street and Hwy 61 in Maplewood, is scheduled to start Monday, March 11. 

Work will include the replacement of the Hwy 36/English St signalized intersection with a diamond interchange.  In addition, the project will include improvements to the County Road B/Hwy 61 intersection, removal of the existing access to Hwy 36 at Hazelwood and Atlantic Streets and the replacement of the Vento Trail pedestrian and bicycle bridge.

Included within the project is a 75-day full closure of Hwy 36 between White Bear Avenue and Hwy 61.  The closure will take place this summer.  More information will be provided as the date nears.

The Hwy 36/English Street improvement project will improve safety and efficiency along Hwy 36 and improve pedestrian and bicycle facilities.

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