    Metro - Hwy 169 between Golden Valley and Edina: 2017 construction


    Hwy 169 Nine Mile Creek bridge closure starts Jan. 10

    Heads up! 
    Nine Mile Creek Bridge on Hwy 169 between Bren Rd. in Minnetonka and 7th St. (5th St. – Lincoln Dr. exit) in Edina will be closed both directions starting at 5 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10. The associated northbound and southbound ramps going toward the bridge will also be closed.
    Southbound Hwy 169 from Excelsior Blvd. to 7th St. and northbound Hwy 169 from Hwy 62 to Bren Rd. will also be reduced to one lane. The exit ramp from westbound I-394 to southbound Hwy 169 will also be closed during the project. 
    You can view a map of road/ramp closures.
    The bridge closure and lane reductions are necessary as crews begin to remove the Nine Mile Creek Bridge, which is being replaced next year. The work is expected to last through Oct. 2017, weather permitting.


    Motorists are advised to follow the signed detours to bypass the closure:
    • Northbound detour: Eastbound Hwy 62, Northbound Hwy 100, Westbound I-394 to Hwy 169
    • Southbound detour: Westbound I-394, Southbound I-494 to Hwy 169
