I-494 ramps at Tamarack Road and I-694 ramp at 10th Street to close May 30

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists traveling on Interstate 494 and I-694 in the Woodbury and Oakdale area will encounter lane and ramp closures and detours starting May 30, weather permitting.

Beginning at 6 a.m., Thursday, May 30, the following lane closures will be in place:

  • Westbound Tamarack Road between Weir Drive and Bielenberg Drive will be reduced to a single lane.
  • Eastbound 10th Street between Highway 120/Century Avenue and Inwood Avenue will be reduced to a single lane

Also, beginning at 6 a.m., Thursday, May 30, the following ramps will close to traffic:

  • The Tamarack Road entrance ramp to southbound I-494
  • The northbound I-494 exit ramp to Tamarack Road
  • The 10th Street ramp to northbound I-694

These closures will remain in place through September, 2019 and are needed to accommodate detoured interstate traffic from the I-94/I-494/I-694 Interchange reconstruction project. 

Motorists should follow the posted detours and allow for extra time to reach their destination.

The Interstate 94/I-494/I-694 interchange and bridge reconstruction project is being done to provide a smoother, safer, long-lasting road with updated bridges and some mobility improvements. 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 2020.
