Cable median barriers will be installed on Hwy 61, I-94 beginning Oct. 7

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists may experience delays in both directions of Hwy 61 in St. Paul and Interstate 94 between Woodbury and the Wisconsin state line as crews begin installing cable median barriers Monday, Oct. 7.

At 9 a.m., crews will intermittently close roadway lanes and shoulders on Hwy 61 between Lower Afton Road and Warner Road, and on I-94 between I-494 and the Wisconsin state line. Work hours will be restricted to prevent congestion. Crews will install the cable median barrier during off-peak daytime and overnight hours.


Motorists should prepare to slow down in work zone areas. 


The work on Hwy 61 is expected to be complete by Monday, Oct. 21, weather permitting. The work on I-94 will be partially complete by Friday, Dec. 20.


Cable median barrier prevents vehicles from crossing medians and into oncoming traffic. Installing cable median barriers in strategic locations helps prevent fatal and serious injury crashes.
