Hwy 52 ramp closure on I-94 scheduled June 13-17

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a ramp closure and delays on Interstate 94 in St Paul as crews continue work on an auxiliary lane.

Beginning at 7:00 a.m. on Monday, June 13, crews will be closing the northbound Highway 52 ramp to eastbound I-94. Motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour of 7th Street to Mounds Blvd to eastbound I-94.

This closure will be in effect until 6:00 p.m. on Friday, June 17. Closure durations and time frames are all approximate and weather dependent.

The work is part of the larger two-year, 49.8 million Interstate 94 reconstruction and improvement project from Mounds Blvd in St. Paul to just east of Century Avenue in Maplewood.

Additional work includes constructing and replacing noise walls, extending auxiliary lanes in specific locations, bridge maintenance, trail connections, updating signals and pedestrian access. The construction will provide a smoother, safer, long-lasting road with better pedestrian accessibility and improved drainage capabilities.

Construction is expected to be complete by late-fall 2017. For more information about the project, visit: www.mndot.gov/i94eastmetro.
