The Minnesota Department of Transportation has some good news for drivers.
The eastbound and southbound lanes to and from Highway 36 and I-694 will reopen by rush-hour on Thursday. The ramps have been closed for the past couple of months while MnDOT has resurfaced the roadway.
While those ramps will be opening, MnDOT will then close the eastbound and southbound ramps to and from Highway 120 (Century Avenue).
MnDOT is on track to finish its I-694 concrete replacement project by the end of the month. All ramps should reopen by the end of October. By mid-November the entire project should be complete.
The I-694 concrete replacement project has taken place from 40th Street to Highway 61, impacting Oakdale, Mahtomedi, Vadnais Heights, White Bear Lake and Maplewood.
