ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays and a detour as eastbound Hwy 10, including the ramp from eastbound Hwy 10 to eastbound I-694, closes at 8 p.m. Monday, May 14. The closure is between Ramsey County Road 96 and eastbound I-694. Access will be maintained to County Road 96.


In addition, the ramp from eastbound I-694 to southbound Snelling Avenue will close at 10 p.m.  May 14. There will be no access from the interstate to southbound Snelling Avenue.


The closures are needed as crews rebuild the intersection of eastbound I-694 and eastbound Hwy 10 at southbound Snelling Avenue.


Both eastbound Hwy 10 and the ramp from eastbound I-694 to southbound Snelling Avenue will remain closed through November 2012 as the I-694 North Central Interchange reconstruction project continues.
