Southbound Lexington Avenue in Arden Hills reopens fully on May 17


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists should experience less congestion as southbound Lexington Avenue reopens to two lanes over I-694 by morning rush hour on Thursday, May 17.

The Lexington Avenue bridge project, which began in early May, will add dual left turn lanes and an improved bicycle/pedestrian crossing over I-694.  Work includes upgrades to the signal system and the ramps to and from the freeway. The project will be completed by mid-July.  Access to the pedestrian lane will be maintained during construction.


The I-694 North Central Interchange Projects in the northern Twin Cities Metro area will rebuild the interchange of I-694 and Hwy 10 at Snelling Avenue and Hamline Avenue in Arden Hills. The two-year project will rebuild 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 surround highways, the project will rebuild bridges in the corridor and to improve pavement condition while enhancing safety and mobility.
