Drivers on Highway 36 in Maplewood will need to take a detour.

Beginning at midnight Monday, MnDOT closed both directions of Highway 36 between Highway 61 and White Bear Avenue.

The closure will last 75 days, so the roadway is expected to reopen at the end of August.

During that time, crews will work on an overpass at English Street and rebuilding the bridge along Keller Lake.
