The work includes repairs to the 86th Street bridge over Hwy 77, upgrades at intersections to provide universal access and drainage improvements.

All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather and schedule permitting and subject to change. MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, and to slow down in work zones where workers are present.
