At 394, Minger’s tunneling crew will continue to excavate tunneling pits and plans to start pushing casing pipe by the end of this week for the first of the three I-394 tunnels.
The pipe crew will finish backfilling the south pit of the Hwy 55 tunnel where the open cut pipe was tied into the tunneled pipe. Once this is completed, crews will begin installing pipe north from the Hwy 55 tunnel across the North Frontage Road to tie the new force main into existing lines. This will require a shutdown of the North Frontage Road between Zane Avenue and Lindsay Street from now through about 7 a.m. Monday Sept. 2. A detour will route traffic around the North Frontage Road via Lindsay and Zane. (A map with this post details area.)
Expect minor traffic control and roadway modifications when traveling through this corridor. Weekly updates will follow.
