Weekend closure of southbound Hwy 100 begins May 20
ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists traveling southbound on Highway 100 between Golden Valley/Minnetonka and Edina, will encounter a weekend road closure and detour beginning May 20, as crews repair the road and the road shoulders.
At 10 p.m. Friday, May 20, southbound Highway 100 between Interstate 394 and Highway 62 will close. The highway and associated ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, May 23.
During the weekend closure, motorists will be detoured to I-394, Highway 169 and Highway 62 or to I-394, I-35W and Highway 62. Weekend travelers should allow for extra drive time throughout the weekend.
The $16.7 million pavement preservation project began in 2015 and will be complete in Aug 2016. Construction includes repairing the pavement on the road and ramps and on nine bridges along the highway. Construction crews will also remove the existing median guardrails and install concrete median barriers. The construction will provide a smoother, safer road surface, and improve and extend the life of the pavement.
