Beginning at 9 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28, westbound I-694 traffic will be restricted to a single lane near Lexington Ave. The overnight closure will last until 5 a.m. Wednesday, May 29 and allow construction crews to complete utility work in the median of the interstate.
Motorists will encounter occasional nighttime lane closure throughout the next few weeks on I-694 as crews work on the new roadway. Please watch for construction vehicles moving in and out of the work area.
The ramp from Lexington Ave to westbound I-694 in Arden Hills is closed. Detour signs will direct motorists to use Victoria Street to access westbound I-694. The ramp is anticipated to re-open by November 2013.
The westbound I-694 exit to westbound Hwy 10 (and Hwy 10 between I-694 and I-35W) will remain closed through November 2013.
About this project
Currently, one of four projects to rebuild the I-694 Corridor between I-35E and I-35W is underway: the I-694, Hwy 10 and Snelling and Hamline Ave interchange project in Arden Hills. Click on the map for details or read more about this project.
The 2013 construction season will bring continued work on the new bridges along with construction of the new westbound lanes of I-694 between Snelling Avenue and I-35W. Work also will begin on the new alignment of Hwy 10 and the ramp from Snelling/Hamline Avenue to westbound Hwy 10.
The 2013 construction season brings construction of a new grade-separated interchange at Hwy 10 and County Road 96. County Road 96 is closed at Hwy 10 until the fall of 2013 and Hwy 10 westbound is closed between I-694 and I-35W. Eastbound Hwy 10 is closed between Prior Avenue and I-694. During the Hwy 10 closure, a new unbounded concrete surface will be placed on the roadway.
