Commuters who use Kellogg Blvd. will be dealing with another road closure starting Monday.
The intersection of Kellogg Blvd. and Jackson Street will be closed for the next 10 weeks as Xcel Energy gets to work on utility work ahead of a larger project that will commence this summer. Signs have been posted to direct motorists around the closure. The recommended detours are shown on the map below.
Motorists might as well get used to using alternate routes. The intersection is expected to be closed through most of this year's construction season and into 2017, the city said.
This summer, the City of St. Paul plans to rebuild Jackson Street and replace of city infrastructure, including a 135-year-old water main, sewer lines, electrical and gas distribution lines, sidewalks, lights and signals.
The rebuild between I-94 and Warner Road also includes adding the first segment of the new downtown bike loop and pedestrian facilities.
The closure on Kellogg Blvd. comes just a few months after the city reopened the segment between Market Street and Wabasha Street. That segment had been closed from April through November as part of a $12 million project to replace structurally deficient bridges and give the street a makeover.
