Weekend traffic switch planned for westbound Hwy 36 at Lexington Avenue in Roseville

Roseville, Minn – Motorists may encounter delays this weekend on westbound Highway 36 at Lexington Avenue in Roseville. MnDOT will restrict the westbound lanes from 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 20 until 10 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 21 between Dale Street and Hamline Avenue. The restriction will allow construction crews to switch traffic onto the new westbound pavement and bridge over Lexington Avenue.

Following the traffic switch, eastbound traffic will remain on the bypass along the south side of the highway and all ramps at Lexington Avenue and the ramp from Dale Street to westbound Highway 36 will remain closed until completion of the new eastbound bridge.
Motorists should use alternate routes to avoid congestion.
