County Road E ramp closure in the northeast Twin Cities metro scheduled March 28

ROSEVILLE, Minn.—Motorists on County Road E in Vadnais Heights will encounter a ramp closure on Monday, March 28.

Beginning at 9 a.m., the County Road E ramp to northbound I-35E will close. Motorists should follow the posted detour. The ramp will reopen in mid-June.

The ramp closure is part of the two-year I-35E Goose Lake Road and Highway 96 road resurfacing project.
