Lane reductions on Hwy 169 start April 10

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists will encounter one lane closed on both northbound and southbound Highway 169 between Fifth Street-Lincoln Drive and Interstate 394 starting at 5 a.m. Monday, April 10.

The lane reduction is necessary as crews resurface the road on Highway 169, replace guardrail, lengthen the acceleration/deceleration lanes at Cedar Lake Road, and other road improvements.
The Nine Mile Creek Bridge on Highway 169 remains closed between the Bren Road/Londonderry and Fifth Street – Lincoln Drive exit as crews continue to rebuild the bridge.

Motorists are advised to follow the signed detours to bypass the bridge closure and lane reduction on Highway 169:

  • Northbound detour: Eastbound Hwy 62, Northbound Hwy 100, Westbound I-394 to Hwy 169
  • Southbound detour: Westbound I-394, Southbound I-494 to Hwy 169

The work is expected to last through October 2017, weather permitting.
