Weekend closure ahead for Fairview Avenue at Hwy 36 in Roseville
ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation will close Fairview Avenue in both directions between County Road B and County Road B2 this coming weekend to bore utilities beneath the road. Fairview Avenue will close at 9 p.m. Friday, July 14, and reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, July 17. During the closure, access will be maintained at Gluek Lane and Frontage Road, south of Highway 36.
As reconstruction continues at the Highway 36 and Fairview Avenue interchange, the ramps and loops between the highway and Fairview Avenue remain closed until late July. Fairview Avenue. also is restricted to a single lane in each direction between County Road B and County Road B-2 through the end of the project. Motorists continue to have right-in, right-out access only along Fairview Avenue in both directions in the same area. Traffic cannot cross Fairview Avenue.
The west entrance to Rosedale Mall also remains closed but is expected to reopen within the next week.
The project is anticipated to be complete by August 24, before the start of the Minnesota State Fair.
Crews are rebuilding and realigning the ramps and loops at Hwy 36 and Fairview Ave. near the mall in Roseville. The project also will include drainage improvements along the new alignment, build new right turn lanes on northbound Fairview Ave. and remove the concrete median and relocate signals to allow for the through movement of northbound Fairview Ave. traffic to the mall's west entrance. We are rebuilding existing sidewalks along the roadway to meet Americans with Disability Act (ADA) standards. The project is anticipated to be complete in late August.
