Hwy 95 road closure on May 5 in Washington Co.

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a day-long full road closure on Highway 95 between Bailey Road and 70th Street in Washington County beginning at 6 a.m., Saturday,  May 5, weather permitting.

The day-long closure is necessary as crews conduct road surveying work to prepare for the upcoming Highway 95 safety improvement project.

Crews expect to re-open this section of Highway 95 by 8 p.m. on that same day, Saturday, May 5.

This work is part of a larger safety improvement project on Highway 95 from Valley Creek Road to Highway 61. This years’ work includes road resurfacing, widening shoulders, updating highway drainage system, installing mumble strips, constructing turn lanes and improving sight distance at specific locations.  The 2018 construction will require a 90-day full road closure. Local property access will be maintained throughout construction. The full closure is anticipated to take place from early June to Sept. 7. The improvements will enhance safety, provide a smoother road surface and improve traffic flow in the corridor.

The next stage of construction on Highway 95 will occur in 2019-2020 between 70th Street and Highway 61.
