Spring construction work on the St. Croix River Crossing is ramping up this week.
As you’ve noticed, traffic on Highway 36 is down to a single lane in both directions from Highway 95 to the Washington Avenue/Norell Avenue intersection. MnDOT says you can expect single-lane traffic along this stretch of town through November 2014.
It’s National Work Zone Safety Week. There will be a lot of construction activity this year, so please slow down in work zones and “expect the unexpected.”
Here are five things to know about the St. Croix River Crossing Project this week:
- The South Frontage Road between Osgood Avenue and Club Tara is closed, and will remain closed, until early-July 2014. Access will always be available either from the west using Osgood Avenue or from the east using Stagecoach Trail.
- Land preparation work—including clearing trees and shrubs—will happen for the next two or three weeks near the Oakgreen Avenue/Greeley Street intersection and on Highway 95 north of Highway 36.
- Night work begins the week of April 14 near the Beach Road bridge. Typical overnight work hours will occur from Monday through Saturday. This work will last for about three weeks.
- You will continue to hear banging from pile driving from 7 a.m- to 7 p.m. through the 2014 construction season.
- Crews poured concrete for the south footing of the new WIS 35 overpass over WIS 64 last week. Construction crews also removed more topsoil and dirt for the stormwater pond located where the new WIS 64 will travel under WIS 35.
