Eastbound Highway 36 from Century Avenue to I-694 will be closed starting Friday night for storm sewer work.

The highway is scheduled to be closed from 8 p.m. Friday, June 7, through 5 a.m. Monday, June 10, according to a Washington County news release.

Motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour of north on White Bear Avenue, and then east on I-694, before returning to eastbound Highway 36.

This work was planned earlier in May, but was rescheduled because of wet weather. It is part of the larger Highway 36/Hadley Interchange construction project which is designed to enhance user safety and mobility throughout this segment, while extending continuity of the Highway 36 corridor.

Project improvements will include a new bridge, interchange ramps, Gateway Trail grade separation, and other pedestrian enhancements.
