Weekend closure on I-94 in St. Paul starting July 22

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Interstate 94 in St. Paul will encounter a detour starting at 8 p.m. Friday, July 22. I-94 will be completely closed between Lexington Parkway and I-35E in St. Paul. And I-94 will also be down to a single lane between Highway 280 and Lexington Parkway.

Vehicles should detour using Highway 280, Highway 36, and I-35E. All lanes will reopen by 5 p.m. Sunday, July 24. 

The closure is necessary to facilitate the removal of the MacKubin Street and Grotto Street pedestrian and bike bridges, which are being replaced this summer.
