Snelling/Hamline Avenue ramp closure, I-694 traffic switch set this weekend on eastbound I-694 in Arden Hills


ROSEVILLE, Minn. -- Eastbound Interstate 694 traffic will be restricted to a single lane of traffic from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 26, as traffic is shifted onto the newly built final alignment of the eastbound interstate between I-35W and Snelling Avenue.

Once the traffic switch is completed, the ramp from eastbound I-694 to southbound Snelling/Hamline Avenue will close until mid-November. The closure will allow crews to finish grading, pouring curb and gutter and installing permanent signing and striping. Weather permitting, the ramp will reopen by mid-November.

Motorists will need to use an alternate route or follow the signed detour: south on I-35W and east on Highway 36 to reach Snelling Avenue and Hamline Avenue.
