Highway 5

Around the Airport project nearly complete

Road construction around the airport is in its final stage and is expected to be complete in October. Around the Airport is a construction project to resurface Highway 5 with new concrete and repair 12 bridges and ramps. When the project is finished, motorists will have a smoother ride on Highway 5 and I-494.

If you travel on Highway 5, plan extra time for your commute, through the end of October, and know your route before you hit the road. The westbound Highway 5 lanes and ramps will be closed between TH 62 and I-494.  During this time, the eastbound Highway 5 traffic lanes will remain open and westbound traffic will be detoured around the airport using westbound TH62, southbound TH77 and eastbound I-494. 

All traffic impacts are tentative and weather dependent. For closure maps, detour information, travel tools and other information, visit blm.mn/h5construction or call 651-296-3000.
