ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Starting at 10 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will close Highway 169 overnight in both directions in New Hope/Plymouth. These overnight closures, which will remain in place through 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, are necessary so construction crews can remove traffic barriers and begin restriping the road.

Beginning at 10 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 2 through 5 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 4, MnDOT crews will close southbound Hwy 169 between I-94 and 36th Ave. from 10 p.m. through 5 a.m. nightly. Crews will also close northbound Hwy 169 between I-394 and 49th Ave. during the same time.
Motorists can use I-94, Interstate 494 and I-394 as detour routes during these overnight closures.
