I-94/Cedar Avenue ramp closure begins May 21
Ramp scheduled to close for four days


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists may experience delays and a detour as the ramp from westbound I-94 to Cedar Avenue in Minneapolis closes at 5 a.m. Monday, May 21.


During the closure, motorists will be detoured to exit 25th Avenue S./Riverside Avenue, then use southbound 25th Avenue S. and westbound Franklin Avenue to access Cedar Avenue.


The ramp closure is needed for pavement and drainage work as part of the I-94 improvement project. The ramp will reopen by the morning of Friday, May 25.


The I-94 improvement project between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul includes Smart Lane technology to improve safety and congestion. The project also includes resurfacing, which will create a smoother ride for motorists and extend the lifespan of the roadway, drainage improvements, bridge maintenance work, reconstruction of the shoulders, and realignment of the lanes.
