Eastbound I-94 lane closures and traffic changes begin June 20

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a lane closure and traffic shift on eastbound Interstate 94 from St. Paul to Maplewood. Beginning Monday, June 20, the left lane of eastbound I-94 between East 7th Street and Century Avenue will close. The closure will be in effect between the hours of 4:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. daily. During this timeframe, there will be two lanes of traffic heading east toward Wisconsin.

In addition, beginning at 9 p.m. on Thursday, June 23, traffic on eastbound I-94 between 11th Street and Mounds Blvd will be shifted to the outside lanes.

These traffic changes will continue through mid-August. All work is weather dependent and subject to change.

The work is part of the larger two-year, 49.8 million Interstate 94 reconstruction and improvement project from Mounds Blvd in St. Paul to just east of Century Avenue in Maplewood. Additional work includes constructing and replacing noise walls, extending auxiliary lanes in specific locations, bridge maintenance, trail connections, updating signals and pedestrian access.

Construction is expected to be complete by late-fall 2017. For more information about the project, visit: mndot.gov/metro/projects/i94stpaul/
