Work begins on Highway 110


The project area for Highway 110 is between Highway 15/13 and Interstate 494. The work, which began May 15, will help rehabilitate the busy, four-lane state highway.

Work has begun on the eastbound lanes of Highway 110. Currently, it is one lane of traffic, but starting June 12 both lanes will be closed for six weeks. During that time, drivers will need to use the signed detours on interstates 35E and 494. The full closure of westbound traffic will follow completion of work on the eastbound lanes.
