For drivers on Hwy. 100, the price they will pay for the Monday's nice weather is an overnight shut down between the Crosstown and Interstate 394, the contractor doing work as part of a pavement rehabilitation project and bridge building project near Hwy. 7 announced Monday.
The impromptu closure was brought about by a threat of mid-week rain and moved it up to Monday night.
The highway in both directions will be shut down from 10 p.m. Monday until 5 a.m. Tuesday. Ramps to and from Hwy. 100 will begin closing at 9 p.m., MnDOT said.
Residents living near the construction site should expect to hear noise from large equipment throughout the night, MnDOT said.
