Hwy. 61 ramp closures ahead
The 80th Street entrance ramp to northbound Highway 61 is expected to close for two weeks starting on or around July 15 as the new concrete surface is placed on the highway between Innovation Road and 70th Street, according to a press release.
Ramps to and from northbound Highway 61 at Innovation Road and Jamaica Avenue will also close sometime during the first phase of the project.
The southbound Highway 61 roadway will be resurfaced in a subsequent project phase later this summer. At that time the southbound ramps will be affected, but the northbound ramps will be open. For more information go to http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy61/.
