Hwy 280/I-35W interchange in Roseville closes for reconstruction Monday, May 2

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Reconstruction of the interchange at Highway 280 and I-35W in Roseville begins at 6 a.m. on Monday, May 2. During the six-week closure north of Broadway Street to I-35W, crews will rebuild and improve the layout of the ramp from northbound Highway 280 to northbound I-35W. The new layout will improve safety and reduce congestion. New pavement also will provide a much smoother ride for motorists.

During the closure, Highway 280 traffic will follow a signed detour using Broadway Street, Industrial Boulevard and I-35W. I-94 and I-35W traffic will be detoured on Highway 51/Snelling Avenue.

When the interchange reopens to traffic in mid-June, the final stages of the project will begin to resurface Highway 280 between Broadway Street and Como Avenue. Resurfacing will be completed by late July.
