Several I-494 lane, ramp closures in southeast Twin Cities set for June 11-13

Eastbound I-494 will be reduced to a single lane June 12-13

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists traveling on Interstate 494 between Inver Grove Heights and Sunfish Lake should plan for delays as crews will close several lanes and ramps in both directions of I-494 beginning at 7 a.m. Thursday, June 11:

  • Westbound I-494 between Highway 52 and Delaware Avenue will be reduced to two lanes from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, June 11.  
  • Eastbound I-494 between Delaware Avenue and Highway 52 will reduced to a single lane from 9 a.m. Friday, June 12 to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 13.
  • The southbound Highway 52 ramp to eastbound I-494 will be closed and detoured from 9 a.m. Friday, June 12 to 5 p.m. Saturday, June 13.

All scheduled reopening dates for the lanes and ramps are weather dependent.

Residents who live near this area of I-494 may hear noise as crews work around the clock in order to set barrier, remove pavement and repave the road.

The lane and ramp closures are part of a larger project on I-494 to repave the road, update drainage and repair seven bridges on an eight-mile stretch I-494 between the Minnesota River and Third Avenue in South St. Paul.

This is the second year of a two-year project. Motorists can expect several full or partial closures of I-494. Work is scheduled to be completed by fall 2020, weather permitting.
