Hwy 95 road closure begins June 4 in Washington County

Full closure will be in place for 90 days

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a full road closure on Highway 95 between Bailey Road and 70th Street in Washington County beginning at 6 a.m., Monday,  June 4. The closure is necessary as crews continue construction activities as part of the Highway 95 safety improvement project. Highway 95 motorists will bypass the closed segment by utilizing the posted detour of 70th Street, Woodbury Drive to Bailey Rd. During the closure, local property access will be maintained in the project area. Crews expect to re-open this section of Highway 95 by Sept. 7, weather permitting.

This work is part of a larger safety improvement project on Highway 95 from Valley Creek Road to Highway 61. This years’ work includes road resurfacing, widening shoulders, updating highway drainage system, installing mumble strips, constructing turn lanes and improving sight distance at specific locations.  The improvements will enhance safety, provide a smoother road surface and improve traffic flow in the corridor.

The next stage of construction on Highway 95 will occur in 2019-2020 between 70th Street and Highway 61. For more information, visit the project website and sign up for email updates at: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy95safetyimprovements/
