Interstate 94 weekend lane closures in East Metro scheduled for Oct. 15-16

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists on Interstate 94 will encounter single lane traffic from St. Paul to Maplewood on Oct. 15 and Oct. 16, weather permitting.

Eastbound I-94 traffic will be reduced to one lane from East 7th St. to Hwy 120/ Century Ave. from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily on both Saturday, Oct. 15, and Sunday, Oct. 16.

The lane closures are necessary as crews complete survey work. MNDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution and slowdown in work zones.

The work is part of a larger two-year project which includes resurfacing both directions of Interstate 94 from Mounds Blvd to just east of Century Avenue in Maplewood, constructing and replacing noise walls, adding and extending auxiliary lanes in specific locations, bridge maintenance, updating signals and pedestrian access and improving drainage system.

The construction will provide a smoother, safer, longer-lasting road with better pedestrian accessibility and improved drainage capabilities. Construction is expected to be complete by late-fall 2017.
