Highway 52 southbound between St. Paul, Inver Grove Heights closing May 7-10

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists traveling southbound on Highway 52 between Plato Boulevard in St. Paul and Interstate 494 in Inver Grove Heights will encounter a weekend closure beginning Friday, May 7.

Weather permitting, southbound Highway 52 will be closed and detoured between Plato Boulevard and I-494 beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, May 7 so crews can resurface the road. Motorists should follow the signed detour using eastbound I-94, southbound Highway 61 and westbound I-494 to Highway 52.

All lanes are scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, May 10.

Beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, May 10, the ramp from northbound Highway 52 to Butler Avenue will close for approximately seven days.

These lane and ramp closures are the third of seven weekend directional closures on Highway 52. While crews have the road closed, they will be resurfacing the road between I-494 in Inver Grove Heights and Highway 156/Concord Street in St. Paul, as well as repairing concrete between Concord Street and Plato Boulevard in St. Paul. During construction, there also will be several ramp closures in this area that will last up to one week.
