Southwest LRT Construction Update: May 14, 2021

Highway 212 Weekend and Early Morning Closures
A weekend closure of the ramp from westbound Highway 62 to westbound Highway 212 is planned for Saturday, May 15 starting at 6:00 AM through Sunday evening, May 16. Crews will use the closure to connect a temporary ramp to the existing ramp, so that retaining wall work in the area can advance. See Eden Prairie upcoming detour information.

Then on Tuesday May 18 from 3:00 AM to 5:00 AM the ramp from westbound Highway 62 to westbound Highway 212 will close again. Additionally, Highway 212 traffic will be stopped for 15-minute periods between 4:00 AM to 5:00 AM as the contractor moves a crane across Highway 212 near Shady Oak Road.
