Southwest LRT Updates
Pier Construction Near Purgatory Creek Park
The inner-most lanes both north and south on Prairie Center Drive between Technology Drive and Singletree Lane are closed until mid-April. Access to Flagship Corporate Center is limited to vehicles traveling south on Prairie Center Drive. Vehicles leaving Flagship will be required to turn right onto Prairie Center drive to exit the lot.
Flying Cloud Drive Traffic Impacts
Starting this month, drivers on Flying Cloud Drive between Eden Road and Valley View Road will experience four phases of different traffic impacts — specifically lane reductions and closures — as crews build LRT infrastructure along the northwest side of the roadway. This work will also affect connecting roadways in each phase. The initial phase will close the two inside lanes and traffic will be reduced to one lane in each direction on Flying Cloud Drive. The westbound exit from Highway 494 to Flying Cloud Drive will also close for the 2020 construction season, but alternate routes will be posted.
These are a just a few details from the most recent SWLRT construction update. If you want to stay informed about how this ongoing construction project may affect your daily routine, sign up for weekly project updates from the Metropolitan Council or follow the project on Twitter @SouthwestLRT.
