You may have seen the signs that were installed earlier in the week—I want to give you an update on what is to be expected the first few weeks before the Hwy 110 eastbound directional closure begins on June 12.
In order to complete the project as quickly as possible, eastbound Hwy 110 will be reduced to one lane where work is occurring and will move locations throughout the upcoming weeks between Lexington Ave. and I-494.
The closure and detour of eastbound Hwy 110 is expected to begin June 12, 2017 (weather permitting). This means all eastbound traffic will be detoured to I-35E, EB I-494, NB Hwy 3 back to Hwy 110. Westbound traffic will be utilizing their usual lanes. The eastbound side of the highway will open about half way through the work around July 24, and westbound Hwy 110 will be closed and detoured at that time.
The north and southbound movements at both Delaware Ave and Dodd Rd/149 will remain accessible throughout the project except for a brief overnight duration when paving occurs this date has not yet been determined.
This one-construction season project is expected to run though the fall of 2017. During that time, there will be pavement, signing and drainage improvements along with construction of a Dakota County pedestrian underpass.
Please be attentive, drive with caution, slowdown in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
