In the spring of 2022, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin a road resurfacing project on Highway 36 between Edgerton Street in Ramsey County and Greeley Street in Washington County. The construction covers a 12-mile stretch of Highway 36 and will impact traffic in the cities of Little Canada, Maplewood, North St. Paul, Oakdale, Pine Springs, Lake Elmo, Stillwater, and Oak Park Heights.
The work will include resurfacing existing pavement, improving pedestrian accessibility, and updating the drainage system under the roadway. Motorists can expect weekend directional closures with detours, single-lane traffic, lane closures, and flagging in specific locations during the work.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation realizes this work will cause some inconvenience for businesses, customers, residents, and motorists traveling on Highway 36. Planners have tried to minimize those traffic impacts as much as possible. Once construction is complete in late fall of 2022, motorists will experience a smoother ride quality, better pedestrian accessibility, and improved drainage.
