Postponed: Ramp closures at the I-494/Hwy 100 interchange begin in late March/early April

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation has postponed the ramp closures from eastbound I-494 to northbound Hwy 100 and from southbound Hwy 100 to eastbound I-494, originally scheduled to begin Sunday, March 17. MnDOT has tentatively scheduled these closures to begin later in March or early April. These closures, which will remain in place through late April or early May, are necessary so construction crews can begin work to realign and reconstruct the ramps.

Motorists traveling on eastbound I-494 can use the cloverleaf ramp at the Highway 212/I-494 interchange from eastbound I-494 to eastbound Highway 212 to northbound Highway 100 as a detour.

For the southbound Highway 100 to eastbound I-494 ramp closure, motorists can take eastbound Highway 62 to southbound I-35W to eastbound I-494 as a detour.

All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather and schedule permitting and subject to change. MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, and slowdown in work zones where workers are present.
