Highway 96 bridge weekend closure in White Bear Lake rescheduled

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The County Highway 96 bridge closure scheduled for tonight has been rescheduled to a later date. Crews made the scheduling change due to the forecast of rain and unseasonably cool temperatures expected over the weekend. A new closure date will be announced after the Fourth of July holiday.

The bridge work is part of the two-year I-35E Goose Lake Road and Highway 96 road resurfacing project. In addition to resurfacing, the work includes widening the road, re-decking and widening the Highway 96 bridge, replacing the I-35E bridges over Goose Lake Road, updating drainage, repairing guardrail and constructing a trail. The work is expected to be complete by late summer 2017.
