Phalen Boulevard/Pennsylvania Avenue lane restrictions begin March 31


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists may experience delays as lane restrictions on Phalen Boulevard/Pennsylvania Avenue in St. Paul begin Monday, March 31.

Both directions of Phalen Boulevard/Pennsylvania Avenue will be reduced to a single lane at I-35E, between approximately L’Orient Street and just east of Mississippi Street.

The lane restrictions are needed for construction of the new northbound I-35E bridge spanning Phalen Boulevard/Pennsylvania Avenue. Lane restrictions/lane shifts at this location are anticipated to occur throughout the duration of the I-35E Cayuga improvement project.

The I-35E Cayuga improvement project aims to reconstruct I-35E between University Avenue and Maryland Avenue, including replacement of the Cayuga Bridge, the Pennsylvania Avenue Bridge and the railroad bridges along I-35E. Read more about the Cayuga project at www.mndot.gov/metro/projects/35estpaul/cayuga.html.
