MnDOT Project Updates: Hwy 55 Minneapolis to IGH

MnDOT will be improving the ride (smoothness), restoring the pavement and redecking or repairing bridges on Hwy 55 between Minneapolis and IGH. Below are some of the traffic impacts in and around IGH.

Hwy 55 Project Impacts in IGH

Hwy 55 Closed between Blue Gentian Rd/Lexington Ave. and Mendota Heights Road

Both directions of Hwy 55 are closed between Blue Gentian Rd/Lexington Ave. and Mendota Heights Road through mid-August.

Westbound Hwy 55 over the Mendota Bridge opens June 22, and eastbound Hwy 55 closes June 23

Westbound Hwy 55 driving lanes reopened between Hwy 13 and Hwy 5 on June 22.

Beginning at 5 a.m. today, June 23, eastbound Hwy 55 closed over the Mendota Bridge between Hwy 5 and Hwy 13 through Mid-August. Crews will also close the ramps from southbound Hwy 5 to eastbound Hwy 55 and the eastbound Hwy 62 ramp to northbound Hwy 5. EB Hwy 55 is also closed between Hwy 13 and Mendota Heights Rd. through June 30.

Over the next few weeks, you may also encounter ramp and lane closures on both I-35E between Lone Oak Rd. and Hwy 62 and on I-494 between I-35E and Pilot Knob Rd. as crews continue to replace the Hwy 55 bridge deck over the road.

When possible, motorists should use posted detour routes and avoid cutting through neighborhoods to help keep the community safe.

Mendota Bridge Trail Reopens June 21

Motorists, pedestrians and bicyclists that travel over the westbound Mendota Bridge will find some relief as the trail re-opened on June 21.
