Horrible summer on Highway 100 starts now

 Major road construction is underway on Highway 100 in a $60 million project that will run through November 2016. Detours will add more traffic to Highway 169, Interstate 394 and Highway 62.

Weekend closure from Hwy 62 to 394

From 9 p.m. on Friday, March 27 to 5 a.m. on Monday, March 30, Highway 100 between Interstate 394 and Highway 62 will be closed. Highway 169 is the posted detour for north-south traffic.

What to expect this summer

April 20 through July 2015, Highway 100 will be reduced to two lanes in each direction, using the southbound side of the highway. You can also expect the following summer closures:

27th Street ramp to southbound Hwy 100

Ramp from Hwy 7 to northbound Hwy 100

Ramp from northbound Hwy 100 to Barry Street will close for about 30 days

Why is this work being done?
