Overnight ramp closures scheduled for Highway 52 May 23-24

Lafayette Bridge project continues



ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists will experience detours overnight Wednesday, May 23 and Thursday May 24 as ramps from northbound Highway 52 to westbound Interstate 94 and the ramp from East 7th Street to westbound Interstate 94 close at 7 p.m. both days.

The closures are needed as crews continue to build west half of the new loop from northbound 52 to westbound 94.

Motorists are advised to follow the posted detours in order to reach westbound Interstate 94 during the ramp closures: eastbound 7th Street to southbound Mounds Boulevard.

The ramps are scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. Thursday, May 24 and Friday, May 25.

When completed late 2014 – early 2015 the new Lafayette Bridge will provide two through-lanes and an auxiliary lane in each direction for entering and exiting traffic. The project also includes the modification and realignment of the Highway 52 Bridges spanning I-94. A pedestrian and bicycle lane on the northbound bridge is included in the plan.
