Good morning, commuters!

Commuters in downtown St. Paul will find that Kellogg Blvd. is closed between Market Street and Wabasha Street. Additionally, the southbound lanes on the Wabasha Bridge, and the northbound lanes of the Exchange Street viaduct.

It's all related to a $12 million project to rebuild two 80-year-old bridges that make up Kellogg Blvd., and are now among the city's most deficient.

Detours will be in place until November when the project is scheduled to be complete. Motorists will be directed to use 7th Street and Robert Streets during the closure.

Speaking of closures, lanes that had been blocked on eastbound I-94 between Albertville and the Crow River have just reopened. Road work in the area has lifted, but that has traffic bunching up approaching Hwy. 241.

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.
