Weekend lane closures of Hwy 100 begin July 8
ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Highway 100 between Edina and Golden Valley/Minnetonka will encounter two consecutive weekends of lane closures and detours beginning June 8.
At 10 p.m. Fri., July 8, southbound Highway 100 will close between I-394 and Highway 62. The highway and associated ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 11.
At 10 p.m. Fri., July 15, northbound Highway 100 between Highway 62 and I-394 will close. The highway and associated ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 18.
During the weekend closures, motorists will be detoured to I-394, Highway 169 and Highway 62 or to I-394, I-35W and Highway 62. Motorists should allow for extra drive time throughout the week and weekend.
The $16.7 million pavement preservation project began in 2015 and will be complete in Aug 2016. Construction includes repairing the pavement on the road and ramps and on nine bridges along the highway. Construction crews will also remove the existing median guardrails and install concrete median barriers. The construction will provide a smoother, safer road surface, and improve and extend the life of the pavement.
