Nearby residents may experience some noise, lights and vibration as crews work 24-hours a day. All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather permitting and subject to change.

Also, southbound Highway 101 is reduced to a single lane between the Highway 10/101/169 interchange in Elk River and the Highway 101/Wright County Road 39/90th Avenue interchange in Otsego. The lane closure is necessary to construct a new access lane between the interchanges along southbound Highway 101.

The work is part of the 169 Redefine freeway project from Highway 10/101 to 197th Avenue. When complete in 2024, the project will improve traffic flow, increase capacity and reduce bottle necks, and improve motorist and pedestrian safety along three miles of Highway 169 in Elk River, Sherburne County.
