Closure date advanced for Hwy 10, Ramsey County Road 96 intersection in Arden Hills
Closures rescheduled for Saturday evening, April 20
ROSEVILLE, Minn. – With the threat of inclement weather late this coming weekend, the closure of the intersection at Hwy 10 and Ramsey County Road 96 has been moved up to Saturday evening, April 20. Weather permitting, crews will begin moving barriers in to place early Saturday and the intersection will close by 6 p.m. that evening. The closure will allow crews to begin major reconstruction at Hwy 10 and Ramsey County Road 96. The closures are also needed to begin resurfacing of the Hwy 10 Diagonal between I-694 and I-35W.
As construction activity ramps up Monday morning, commuters should use an alternate route. During the construction season, traffic will detour on I-35W and I-694 to avoid the closure. The eastbound Highway 10 bridge over I-35W will remain open for local access from County Road H during the first part of the construction. However the ramp from southbound I-35W to Highway 10 will close. The westbound County Road 10 bridge will be open from northbound I-35W only during the 2013 construction season. Old Highway 10 (County Road 76) will close at the south junction with Lakeshore Place but local access will be maintained.
Construction of a partial interchange and overpass at the current intersection of Highway 10 and Ramsey County Road 96 will carry County Road 96 traffic beneath Highway 10, and the traffic signal will be removed. The new interchange will not allow access between eastbound County Road 96 and Hwy 10 or from westbound County Road 96 to eastbound Hwy 10. In addition, westbound Hwy 10 will not be able to access County Road 96.
