Traffic switch on Hwy 36 is Sunday

Motorists should avoid the construction zone at the intersection of Highway 36 and Highway 95 from 6 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 27, to 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 28.

During this time, crews will complete a major traffic switch as part of St. Croix Crossing construction. Motorists should expect delays throughout the construction zone.

Southbound Highway 95 traffic will use a signed detour. Northbound Highway 95 traffic will not have a detour.

If weather prevents the traffic switch on Sunday night, it will occur between 9 p.m. Monday, Oct. 28, and 5 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 29., and throughout the week, if necessary.

When the traffic switch is complete, motorists will experience:

• New ramp with a traffic signal directly between Highway 36 and Highway 95

• New Highway 95 lanes with portions of single-lane and two-lane traffic in each direction

• Single-lane traffic on the newly constructed eastbound lanes of Highway 36

Lookout Trail closure continues

A two-week closure of Lookout Trail in Oak Park Heights began earlier this week. Through traffic should follow the signed detour, and area residents will always be able to access their homes. Crews will complete utility work during this closure.

Work continues on the new access trail next to WIS 64 near the site of the new St. Croix Crossing bridge. All tree clearing is complete.
