Drivers using Rockford Road to access or cross Interstate 494 in Plymouth know the process can be a challenge, especially during peak travel periods as the interchange is often congested.

A short-term maintenance project will make it more difficult.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be reparing concrete approaches to the overpass, which will require lane closures on Rockford Road through October. 27. The work is scheduled to start at 9 a.m. Monday.

MnDOT spokesman David Aeikens says one lane on Rockford Road - also known as County Road 9 - will remain open at all times in both directions while the work is done. Ramps to and from I-494 will remain open, too.
