Overnight lane closures scheduled for next week on I-694, full closure planned for

eastbound Hwy 10

 

Single lane traffic planned for both directions between Rice Street and I-35W

 

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter single lane traffic overnights, on Sunday, March 18 through Wednesday, March 21 on both directions of I-694 between Rice Street in Shoreview and I-35W in Arden Hills. At the same time, eastbound Hwy 10 will be closed and detoured between Ramsey County Road 96 and I-694.

 

Both directions of I-694 will be reduced to one lane at 8 p.m. Sunday, Monday and Tuesday and reopened to all lanes 5 a.m. Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday as crews move barricade and restripe the roadway to shift traffic as construction activity resumes this spring.

 

During the lane closures, drivers are encouraged to use alternative routes to avoid congestion and delays.

 

Major reconstruction at the interchange of I-694 and Hwy 10 at Snelling Avenue and Hamline Avenue in Arden Hills began last fall. The two-year project includes reconstruction of the surrounding roadways between I-35W and Victoria Street along with the Island Lake bridges east of the interchange between Lexington Avenue and Victoria Street.

 

In addition to rebuilding the surrounding highways, the project will rebuild bridges in the corridor and will improve safety and mobility.
