The majority of work majorly affecting traffic is complete. You will continue to see lane closures outside of rush-hour as crews continue to work in the area.

Paving Hwy 65 between 53rd Avenue and just south of Moore Lake Drive has been rescheduled for spring 2015. This will provide better quality pavement then if we were to have started the work last fall.
