ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Pavement preservation work is scheduled to begin Thursday, July 5 on two sections of Hwy 610 in the cities of Brooklyn Park and Coon Rapids. Workers will begin resurfacing Hwy 610 between the Mississippi River bridge and Hwy 252 at 7 p.m. Thursday evening. Crews will work overnight from 7 p.m. Thursday, July 5 to 7 a.m. Friday, July 6. Work on this section will be completed overnight from 7 p.m. Friday, July 6 to 9 a.m. Saturday, July 7.

Motorists will encounter periodic lane closures and short-term full closures of the Hwy each night. During the full closures, drivers should follow an alternate route to bypass the construction.

A thin coating of asphalt is applied to the pavement surface as a protective coating to extend the life of the asphalt pavement. Work is scheduled overnight to minimize traffic impacts. However nearby residents and businesses may experience noise from trucks and sweepers during the project.
