Overnight ramp closure scheduled for I-494/Hwy 169

 

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter delays and a detour on eastbound I-494  when the ramp to southbound Hwy 169  closes at 10 p.m. Thursday, June 7. 

 

During the closure, motorists should follow the posted detour route:

 

The ramp will reopen by 6 a.m. Friday, June 8.

 

Part of the Hwy 169/I-494 Interchange Reconstruction project, the closures are necessary as crews shift traffic onto newly paved portions of the roadway.

 

Additionally the ramp will close between 6 a.m. and 3 p.m., Saturday, June 9 as crews install a sanitary sewer under the roadway. The same detour will be utilized.

 

The Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project includes turning the current expressway into a freeway by rebuilding the interchange with six ramps instead of eight. The performance-based design removes traffic signals, reduces congestion and improves safety.

 

For more information on the Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project, call the Hwy 169/I-494 Project hotline at 1-877-563-4768, e-mail Hwy169-I494@rranow.com or visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/169/.
