I-35E ramp at Diffley Road in Eagan closing April 25

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists intending to exit southbound Interstate 35E at Diffley Road in Eagan will encounter a closure and detour beginning April 25.

The southbound I-35E exit ramp at Diffley Road will close for approximately 30 days beginning Monday, April 25 at 5 a.m. In addition, westbound Diffley Road will be reduced to a single lane that same day.

Once the southbound I-35E ramp work is complete near the end of May, the Diffley Road ramp to northbound I-35E will close for approximately one week.

Motorists should follow the signed detour in order to bypass the closures.
All lanes and ramps are scheduled to reopen by June 3. 

These closures are necessary as crews realign the southbound exit ramp, replace traffic signals and upgrade accessibility to meet current standards.
