Residents living near the Canadian Pacific Rail should expect to hear construction noise overnight Monday through Thursday morning.

Hwy 100 between I-394 and Hwy 62 closes. Detours: Hwy 62, Hwy 169 and I-394.

Residents living near the construction site will hear typical construction noise and vibration overnight throughout the weekend. Working overnight, without traffic, is safer for the construction crews and is necessary for crews to complete the work that needs to be done. We apologize for the disturbance.

April 20 through July 2015

  • Hwy 100 will be reduced to two lanes of traffic in each direction on the southbound side of the highway.
  • Ramp from Hwy 7 to northbound Hwy 100 closes. Detour to northbound Hwy 100: Westbound Hwy 7 to Hwy 169 to I-394.
  • Ramp from northbound Hwy 100 to Barry Street/25 1/2th Street closes for about 30 days.
