Expect lane closures and delays on Hwy 36 near Keller Lake Bridge

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists on Hwy 36 between Hwy 61 and Edgerton Street in Maplewood will experience lane closures as crews begin construction on the new Keller Lake Bridge.


Starting at 6 a.m. Thursday, June 20, westbound Hwy 36 will be reduced to a single lane.


At 12 noon Sunday, June 23, eastbound traffic on the same section of road also will be reduced to a single lane.
