Lanes Along Snelling, Como Reopen in Time for the Fair

August 23, 2017 05:15 PM

Drivers in the east metro will be happy to hear that work on Snelling Avenue near the Minnesota State Fairgrounds is nearly complete.

Concrete repairs and safety improvements have been underway since April between Como Avenue in St. Paul and Highway 36 in Roseville.


All lanes and ramps are now open along this stretch. The only exception is along the northbound side of Snelling Avenue at Hoyt Avenue. The left turn lane is closed for traffic control and is not related to the project itself.

Once the fair is over, some minor work will continue through September with only off-peak lane closures scheduled.

The paving project along Como Avenue in St. Paul will be put on hold starting Thursday morning. However, there is a four-way stop in place of a stoplight along Como Avenue and Raymond/Cleveland Avenue. T

he traffic signal will not be installed until after the fair is over. This will likely cause some traffic delays as drivers wait their turn at the intersection.
