NEWSBRIEF: Ramps closed at I-35E

The eastbound I-494 ramp to northbound I-35E and the southbound I-35E ramp to eastbound I-494 are closed for 42 days, which started Thursday, Aug. 15. Motorists should follow the signed detour using southbound I-35E and Lone Oak Road to access northbound I-35E and eastbound I-494. The closures are needed as crews replace bridge joints between
the ramps on eastbound I-494.
The lane and ramp closures are part of a larger project on I-494 to repave the road, update drainage and repair seven bridges on an eight mile stretch I-494 between the Minnesota River and Third Avenue in South St. Paul. During the two-year project, motorists can expect 14 full or partial closures of I-494. Work is scheduled to be completed by fall
