Hwy 95 traffic switch begins June 29

June 29, 2015

STILLWATER, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Highway 95 near the Highway 36/95 intersection will encounter a traffic switch beginning Monday, June 29.

Traffic is currently single-lane in both directions and using the southbound lanes. Traffic will now be switched to single-lane in both directions using the northbound lanes.

The traffic switch is needed for construction crews to place pre-cast segments from the west bridge abutment across Highway 95 to connect with the completed Minnesota approach span section at Pier 1.

Minnesota approach work will be complete in summer 2015 and the new St. Croix Crossing bridge will open to traffic in fall 2016. When all work is finished, motorists will have smoother highway pavement surfaces, improved flow at intersections, an improved frontage road system—including safer access—and a new river crossing between Minnesota and Wisconsin. All of this will occur while maintaining or restoring the area’s cultural, historic and environmental resources.
