Request a Lane or Shoulder Closure in the Metro District
The Allowable Lane Closure Manual is used when planning and scheduling lane and/or shoulder closures on MnDOT owned and operated roadways. Please complete the following steps to request a lane or shoulder closure.
Check the Allowable Lane Closure Reports to determine if a lane closure is allowed during the desired day and time.
The Allowable Lane Closure Reports determine the appropriate time of day for planned lane closures based on number of available lanes and traffic count data.
If a lane closure is not allowed, contact the appropriate Metro District Work Zone Supervisor to discuss.
Check the Impact Sensitive Routes Map to determine if the proposed lane closure is within an impact sensitive area.
This map is a large data set of previously planned project and detour route locations and schedules.
If the work is within an impact sensitive area, contact the appropriate Metro District Work Zone Supervisor to discuss.
Complete a Metro District Lane Closure Form.
At least 3 business days prior to the proposed closure, submit the completed Metro District Lane Closure Form to MetroLC.DOT@state.mn.us. See the form for more details.
For additional help or information, please contact the appropriate Metro District Work Zone Supervisor to discuss.
