Highway 61 ramp closures occur overnight Oct. 26


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Oakdale area motorists may experience delays as the eastbound ramp from I-694 to Hwy 61 and the ramp from Hwy 61 to westbound I-694 close late tonight.


At that time the ramps at White Bear Avenue and Highway 120 (Century Avenue) will reopen and eastbound/southbound traffic will be transferred to its usual side of the roadway.


Traffic continues to travel in a single lane between Highway 61 and east of Hwy 120.  Eastbound/southbound I-694 traffic is open to two lanes of traffic east of Highway 120.


The ramp closures are needed as crews continue work on the I-694 resurfacing project. The ramps are expected to reopen by the project’s completion in early November.


Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and follow posted detours for ramp closures.
