Southwest Reconnection Project

Chanhassen, Minnesota

The Contractor for the Southwest Reconnection Project plans to install a deck sealer for the Highway 101 causeway bridge starting on Monday, October 2. This work will start at 7:00am on Monday, October 2 and is planned to be complete by Friday, October 27. Although there are no planned full closures of Highway 101, there will be only 1 lane in each direction open to traffic while this work is occurring. Motorists should expect traffic disruptions and delays as this work is occurring and are advised to use alternate routes if possible. This work is weather dependent and any significant changes to the schedule will be communicated when they are known. This deck sealing work is being done to preserve and extend the life of the Highway 101 causeway bridge, as a significant investment was made with the Southwest Reconnection Project.
