I-94 ramp closure starts May 31
East 7th Street to the freeway closing through June 4


(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists will encounter delays and a detour in St. Paul as the ramp from East 7th Street to westbound I-94 closes at 5 a.m. Thursday, May 31.

A signed detour will direct motorists to westbound I-94 during the ramp closure.

The ramp closure is needed as crews continue to build west half of the new loop from northbound 52 to westbound I-94.

The roadway is scheduled to reopen by 11 p.m. Monday, June 4.

In addition, motorists are reminded that the ramp from northbound Hwy 52 to westbound Interstate 94 will close at 7 p.m. Tuesday, May 29 and Wednesday, May 30. This ramp will reopen by 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 30 and Thursday, May 31.

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 Hwy 52 Bridges spanning I-94. A pedestrian and bicycle lane on the northbound bridge is included in the plan.
