Hwy 36 construction between Little Canada and Stillwater begins April 25

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – A road resurfacing project on Hwy 36 between Edgerton Street in Little Canada and Greeley Street in Stillwater will begin Monday, April 25, weather permitting. 

By 7 a.m. Monday, April 25, motorists will encounter median and shoulder closures on Hwy 36 in Pine Springs and Stillwater as crews begin to construct the traffic crossovers that will be used during the directional weekend closures throughout this summer. 

In addition to the weekend closures, motorists will experience lane closures and access closures during the resurfacing project. Most of this work will be done during the day. However, for safety reasons, crews will also have to work during evening hours to avoid some of the heavy daytime traffic on this Hwy .

MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones where workers are present. All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather dependent and subject to change. All businesses and residences will remain accessible throughout the project however, you may have to use a different route. Construction is expected to be completed in fall 2022. 

Construction includes pavement resurfacing, drainage work and pedestrian accessibility in some locations along the project area. Once complete, the 12-mile section of Hwy 36 between Little Canada and Stillwater will have new pavement, upgraded drainage, improved traffic signals and updated pedestrian accessibility.
