Southbound Minnesota Highway 101 between South Diamond Lake Road and 147th Street will be reduced to a single lane beginning at 9 a.m. today, Wednesday, May 28.
The closure is expected to last through Friday, May 30 as crews prepare a bypass road, part of the reconstruction of the Hennepin County 144 and MH 101 interchange in Rogers.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MNDot) sent out a notice earlier this month to businesses and residents following the project stating traffic will be re-routed to the temporary road soon.
That switch will cause major delays on the Rogers/Otsego thoroughfare, as head-to-head traffic will be created on the two-lane road.
More information about the Diverging Diamond project can be found via MNDot’s website, which includes a timeline for future construction and impacts on Rogers businesses.
