Hwy 41 south of Shakopee closing Aug. 12 to early September

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Highway 41 south of Shakopee will be detoured beginning at 6 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 12 through early September.

Crews will reroute Highway 41 traffic between Highway 169 south of Shakopee and First Street in Chaska so workers can build a diverging diamond interchange at Highway 169 and Highway 41/County Road 78.

Motorists will be detoured around the closure from Highway 169 to County Road 69, County Road 101, County Road 61/Chaska Boulevard and Highway 41 in Chaska. Motorists can view a short video to navigate the detour route or visit the website to navigate to local businesses west of Highway 169 within the project area using the frontage roads.

The work is part of a larger project to construct a diverging diamond interchange at the Highway 169/41/78 intersection in Jackson and Louisville townships in Scott County. Construction began in fall 2018 and is anticipated to be completed in late fall 2020.

Motorists are encouraged to allow for extra time and check 511mn.org before traveling for information on road conditions, closures and detour routes. For additional updates, ‘like’ MnDOT at facebook.com/mndot, and follow @mndotnews on Twitter.
