Scott County is warning drivers of daily off-peak lane closures along Highway 169, which will take place through the end of the month.
Parts of the highway will be reduced to a single lane between Highway 41 and 150th Street through Friday, April 26, the county announced Tuesday in a news release.
Southbound Highway 169 will be reduced to a single-lane between 150th Street and Highway 41 daily from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. The northbound lane of that same section will be reduced to a single-lane from from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The lane closures are necessary for constructing the new County Highway 14 bridge deck, according to Scott County.
It's part of the $43.7 million Highway 169 and 41 Interchange Project, where work is underway to construct an interchange at the intersection of U.S. Highway 169, State Highway 41 and County Road 78.
The project also includes an overpass and acceleration lanes at County Road 14 and extension of frontage roads on the east side of Highway 169.
The project is funded in part by the Scott County Transportation Sales Tax.
