MNDOT: Luce Line Trail Bridge Work Postponed to April 1


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Removal of the Luce Line Trail bridge over Highway 12 at the east end of Long Lake and Orono is postponed due to impending inclement weather. The removal is rescheduled from 7 p.m. Wednesday, April 1 until 5 a.m. Thursday, April 2. During the work, Wayzata Boulevard will be closed and detoured. Traffic will follow a signed detour using Old Long Lake Boulevard.

The old bicycle/pedestrian bridge will be replaced with a refurbished historic bridge that was removed during construction of the new Highway 12 alignment between Wayzata Boulevard and Hennepin County Road 6.

While new abutments are built for the bridge, the Luce Line Trail will be closed for approximately seven weeks. Once the abutments are completed, a second closure of Wayzata Boulevard will be required to raise and place the refurbished structure.

Work on the new five-mile alignment of Highway 12 began in summer 2003 and will be completed in summer 2009.
