Co Rd 101/Central Ave. Bridge over Hwy 12 Rehabilitation Project


About this project

This project was initiated by MnDOT due to the deteriorating condition of the bridge deck that carries Co. Rd. 101/Central Ave. Bridge over Hwy 12. It requires removing and replacing the bridge deck. Hennepin County has taken this opportunity to add additional scope to the project to improve traffic operations and safety at this interchange by widening the bridge and adding left turn lanes.

Summary of work

  • Replace the Co. Rd. 101/Central Ave. Bridge deck and approaches
  • Add left turn lanes

Traffic impacts


Spring 2019

  • The Co. Rd. 101/Central Ave. Bridge over Hwy 12 will be closed for the majority of the project with traffic detoured using Co. Rd. 6, Vicksburg Ln. N, Gleason Lake Rd., and Wayzata Blvd. 
  • Impacts to Hwy 12 will be minimal and include lane shifts and shoulder closures.

Expect lane and road closures with detours as work is completed. Note: All businesses and residences will remain accessible throughout the project.
