New road and ramp closures coming on the West Bank

by Nick Sudheimer

UPDATE: Rain and weather conditions have postponed the changes to road and ramp closures. Check back for more information.

Construction on the north side of the Washington and Cedar Avenue interchange will be completed and reopened. Once the north ramp is re-opened, construction on the southern ramps will begin. The ramps – one of which exits from Washington to Cedar Avenue, and the other leads down to the eastbound Washington Avenue towards the University – will be closed until construction is completed sometime in 2012.

Metro Transit stops on south Cedar Avenue will be closed during construction.  Alternate stops are located on the northwest Cedar Avenue ramp, Willey Hall, and Blegen Hall. Campus Connectors will continue to run but all connectors will have one stop at Wiley Hall.

On the map below, the new closures are highlighted in red and bus stop relocations are indicated. Map courtesy of the Metropolitan Council.
