ROSEVILLE, Minn. - Spring sports aren't the only thing being delayed by Minnesota's endless winter.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) announced Monday that the planned closure of Highway 10 and Ramsey County Road 96 in Arden Hills has been pushed back again.
Weather permitting, the closure will begin overnight Sunday, April 21 and commuters will find these roadways closed Monday, April 22 for the start of major reconstruction at Highway 10 and Ramsey County Road 96.
The closures are also needed for resurfacing of the Hwy 10 Diagonal between I-694 and I-35W.
During the construction season, traffic will detour on I-35W and I-694 to avoid the closures.
The eastbound Highway 10 bridge over I-35W will remain open for local access from County Road H during the first part of the construction. However the ramp from southbound I-35W to Highway 10 will close.
The westbound County Road 10 bridge will be open from northbound I-35W only during the 2013 construction season.
Old Highway 10 (County Road 76) will close at the south junction with Lakeshore Place but local access will be maintained.
When completed this fall, the new interchange will carry Highway 10 above County Road 96. The new partial interchange will improve traffic flow and safety for motorists and the new Hwy 10 pavement will provide a smooth, long-lasting surface.
For more information on the Highway 10/County Road 96 Interchange construction, please visit the MnDOT website or call the project hotline at 1-877-206-0060.
