St. Paul building challenge to trigger site visitors complications on interstates by way of fall 2022
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has started a major construction project in St. Paul that is expected to create major traffic problems in the coming year.
The $ 27 million I-94 & I-35E Resurfacing Project in St. Paul, Minnesota began at around 10:00 p.m. on Sunday, July 18, and is expected to continue through the fall of 2022.
Around 200,000 vehicles use this corridor every day, so the project is expected to have a significant impact on traffic.
“The construction will proceed from west to east and will be divided into three stages, each with two subsections for the work on the inner and outer carriageway. The construction will reduce capacity to two lanes in each direction and require long-term closure of the ramps in and out of downtown St. Paul. The construction schedule can change, ”said MnDOT.
During construction, crews will revitalize the freeways, work on repairing and draining ramps, and improving pedestrian accessibility for Americans with Disabilities (ADA)
From July 18 through mid-August, the left two lanes of I-94 are in both directions between west of Western Ave. and Saint Peter St.
In addition, the driveway from 12th St. to WB I-94 and SB I-35E will be closed from July 21st.
The second phase of the project will take place from spring to midsummer 2022 from Marion St. to I-35E.
During the third phase of the project, work will move to I-35E on Mounds Blvd. This takes place from midsummer to autumn 2022.
