Good morning, commuters!
We are in winter's grips and yet it's road construction that is grabbing the traffic headlines today. As it has been all week, the right lane of eastbound I-94 at Huron Blvd. is closed again as MnDOT crews continue working on the noisewall on the south side of the road.
We have no issues there right now, but we likely will have some jamming after 7 a.m.
Today in St. Paul, southbound I-35E will reduced to a single lane between Maryland Avenue and I-94 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. MnDOT says motorists should expect significant delays and should leave early or use alternative routes, if possible.
Also, the ramp from southbound I-35E to University Avenue will close until summer 2015 for area reconstruction. The suggested detour is to take westbound Pennsylania Avenue and southbound Jackson Street to access University Avenue
I’ll be keeping an eye on the roads and rails this morning, reporting any delays or issues — and I will need your help.
If you see or hear about any congestion, delays or problems, e-mail drive@startribune or tweet @stribdrive.
