Edina fighting back against improvised 169 detour

When MnDOT closed the Nine Mile Creek Bridge on U.S. Highway 169, clever drivers found a detour through the Parkwood Knolls neighborhood in Edina. The city of Edina has decided put an end to the unofficial detour.

Tim Harlow of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Now in an extreme measure, the city hopes installing a concrete barricade to block all incoming and outgoing traffic from using Dovre Drive on the upscale neighborhood’s south end will do the trick.

The City Council this week unanimously voted to install the barrier, which will go up Monday and remain up until construction on the Nine Mile Creek bridge is complete this fall.
