Now that the Fourth of July is behind us, road crews are ready to get to work on a couple of major projects.

Highway 55 is closing between the cities of Buffalo and Rockford starting Monday, July 9. A nearly 8-mile segment will close between Division Street and the Crow River Bridge as part of a reconstruction and resurfacing project. The work will continue until middle-to-late August. The detour takes drivers about 20 miles out of the way along Highway 25, Highway 12, County Road 139, County Road 11 and County Road 92.

Once the roadway reopens, motorists will continue to encounter intermittent single lane restrictions until mid-September. Learn more about the project.

Highway 62 is getting its own resurfacing project and that work begins Monday, July 9 as well. Drivers will find nighttime lane closures and ramp closures between Tracy Avenue in Edina and Clearwater Drive in Minnetonka. The work will include several directional weekend road closures too. Learn more about the project.

Meanwhile, nighttime lane closures will continue along Highway 610 this week between Coon Rapids Boulevard and Highway 10. Crews will work from 7 p.m. to 7 a.m. Monday through Friday this week as part of a road preservation project. Learn more.
