I-94 traffic changes in the east metro scheduled May 8 and May 12

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists will encounter traffic changes along Interstate 94 between St. Paul and Maplewood the week of May 8.

The following ramps are expected to re-open during the evening hours of Monday, May 8:

  • Westbound I-94 to southbound Highway 61/Etna Street
  • McKnight Road to westbound I-94
  • Westbound I-94 to Hudson Road
  • Hudson Road to westbound I-94 (the entrance ramp farthest to the east in front of 3M)

The ramps below will close starting at 8 p.m., Friday, May 12 and will remain closed through mid-summer:

  • Westbound I-94 to Mounds Boulevard
  • Southbound Highway 61/Etna Street to westbound I-94
  • Northbound Highway 61 to westbound I-94
  • Westbound I-94 to White Bear Avenue

These ramp openings and closings are needed as crews finish resurfacing the westbound lanes of I-94 in the project area.

The Interstate 94 reconstruction and improvement project will provide a smoother, safer, long-lasting road with better pedestrian accessibility and improved drainage capabilities. Performing periodic pavement repairs at the appropriate times can greatly increase a road’s lifespan. The project helps ensure MnDOT’s transportation system will continue to serve the state for many years. Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2017.
