ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists on Highway 36 in Maplewood will encounter off-peak lane and shoulder closures as crews begin painting the new Highway 36 Keller Lake Bridge.

Beginning at 8 p.m., Monday, Sept. 23, both directions of Highway 36 between Highway 61 and Edgerton Avenue will be reduced to a single lane. In addition, motorists will encounter road shoulder closures on both directions of the highway.

All shoulders and lanes are expected to re-open by 6 a.m., Thursday, Sept. 26.
