Rescheduled: University Avenue ramp closes June 25-27

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience delays as the ramp from University Avenue to westbound I-94/southbound I-35E closes from 6 a.m. Saturday, June 25 until 5 a.m. Monday, June 27.

Previously scheduled to close June 20-21, the closure was rescheduled due to weather delays earlier in the week.

During the closure, motorists be detoured to westbound 12th Street to access the southbound I-35E/westbound I-94 entrance ramps just west of Wabasha Street. The closure is needed while crews install the curb along the ramp.

The work is part of the I-35E Cayuga project, which 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.
