The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is closing a portion of Highway 55 in Plymouth starting Friday night. 

A stretch of Highway 55 will be closed between the east ramp of Interstate 94 and the east ramp of Interstate 494 from 10 p.m. on Friday, May 17, until 5 a.m. on Monday, May 20. 

To detour around the closure, motorists are rerouted to I-494, Interstate 394, and Highway 169.

MnDOT’s website did not say exactly what construction work is being done during the closure, but a resurfacing project started in April 2024 and is expected to last through the summer of 2025.
