Expect lane, ramp closures


ROSEVILLE, Minn.--Motorists will experience delays on I-694 between Hwy 61 and 40th Street North in Oakdale, Mahtomedi, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake and Maplewood beginning Monday, June 11.


Crews will resurface the roadway to provide a smoother and safer ride for motorists.


In addition, ramp reconstruction at Hwy 61, White Bear Avenue, Century Avenue and Hwy 36 will take place. Other parts of the project include the construction of four acceleration lanes at I-694 and Hwy 36, culvert replacements and bridge deck repairs.


Eastbound I-694 between Hwy 61 and 40th Street will be reduced to a single lane starting next week. Westbound I-694 will be reduced to a single lane a week later.  The single lane condition will be in place through early November.


Motorists are advised to seek alternate routes and follow posted detours for ramp closures.
