Reminder: Hwy 169 Nine Mile Creek Bridge closure starts Jan. 17Nine Mile Creek Bridge on Hwy 169 between Bren Rd. in Minnetonka and 7th St. (5th St. – Lincoln Dr. exit) in Edina will close in both directions starting at 3 a.m. Tuesday, Jan. 17. The associated northbound and southbound ramps going toward the bridge will also close.
Southbound Hwy 169 from Excelsior Blvd. to 7th St. and northbound Hwy 169 from Hwy 62 to Bren Rd. will be reduced to one lane. The exit ramp from westbound I-394 to southbound Hwy 169 will be closed during the project to encourage non-local southbound traffic to take the detour routes and for safety reasons. See the project website for a map of road/ramp closures (PDF).
Motorists are advised to follow the detours to bypass the closure:
