Construction closes Washington County ramp for a month

  • Updated: March 22, 2014 - 3:33 PM

Motorists will encounter a ramp closure and detour at Hilton Trail in Pine Springs as the ramp to westbound Hwy. 36 closes at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

When completed in summer 2014, the $13.8 million interchange project will eliminate stoplights that had created a traffic bottleneck along Hwy. 36, a busy corridor for commuters.

The ramp will reopen by April 29, weather permitting, the Minnesota Department of Transportation said.

Also on Tuesday, westbound Hwy. 36 between Interstate 694 and DeMontre­ville Trail will be reduced to a single lane until 3 p.m. that day.

The project results from a corridor study for traffic improvements from I-694 eastward.
