Highway 169 to finally close for bridge repair Monday

After multiple delays, U.S. Highway 169 will finally close Monday to begin construction on the Nine Mile Creek bridge.

Tim Harlow of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Officially lanes across the bridge between Bren Road and Lincoln Drive in Edina will shut down at 2 a.m. Crews will start setting up barricades and cones around 8 p.m. Sunday night, so watch for traffic impacts as the highway is reduced to a single lane in the area leading to the bridge.

What is more likely to catch drivers off guard is that the ramp from westbound I-394 to southbound Hwy. 169 also will close Monday. Additionally, southbound Hwy. 169 will see a new lane configuration from Hwy. 55 down to I-394. All traffic in the right lane of southbound Hwy. 169 will be diverted onto westbound I-394, while through traffic will be shifted to the left lane. Barricades will prevent last-second lane switches.
