Long-term closure begins Monday, April 15 at Hwy 10/Ramsey County Road 96 in Arden Hills
Closure signals start of construction of new interchange
ROSEVILLE, Minn. — As construction begins on a new partial interchange at Highway 10 and Ramsey County Road 96, the intersection will close beginning Monday, April 15. The closure will allow construction crews to begin work on a new partial interchange to carry Highway 10 above County Road 96. At the same time, resurfacing will start on Highway 10 between I-694 and I-35W.
The segment of Highway 10 between County Road 96 and I-694 has been closed since last year for reconstruction of I-694/Highway 10/Snelling and Hamline Avenues. The eastbound Highway 10 bridge over I-35W will remain open for local access from County Road H. 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 between Valentine Lake Road and County Road 96 but local access will be maintained.
During construction, traffic will be detour on I-35W and I-694. Access to local businesses and homes along the Highway 10 Diagonal will be available from County Road H throughout the first stage of the project.
Preliminary work began in late March on a new temporary roadway to carry traffic during construction activity. Once the temporary roadway is completed later this spring, it will connect County Road 96 to a frontage road north of the roadway on the west side of Highway 10. The roadway will allow access to businesses and homes located between County Road 96 and Interstate 35W.
The new partial interchange will not allow access between eastbound County Road 96 and either direction of Highway 10 or from westbound County Road 96 to eastbound Highway 10. In addition, westbound Highway 10 will not be able to access County Road 96.
