2016 Ryder Cup Bridge Signage
In September 2016, Chaska and the Hazeltine National Golf Club were home to the Ryder Cup competition, between the men’s European and United States teams. Prior to the event, the City of Chaska selected Blackstone Contractors to install temporary signage announcing the upcoming event and fabricate and install new pedestrian bridge fence signage over TH 212 between Audubon Road and TH 41. Blackstone Contractor’s subcontractor, Bulach Custom Rock, installed the temporary bridge signage in one day minimizing traffic slow-downs and delays due to lane closures.
As with all temporary signage, the bridge marking denoting ‘Home of the 2016 Ryder Cup’ will be removed in the spring/summer of 2017. Blackstone’s work will include cleaning, prepping and repainting the bridge spanning the entire right-of-way to remove all indication of the sign’s previous location. The new bridge fencing with City of Chaska signage and logo will remain, welcoming motorists to the area.
