Friday, June 3, 2022 - 08:36

UPDATE (07/06/22): Starting Monday, July 11, the St. Paul Circulator will be affected by this road closure.  The Eckles & Carter Avenue bus stop near Lot 101 will be closed.

-------------------------

Beginning Monday, June 13 and continuing into November 2022, Cleveland Avenue will be closed between Como and Buford Avenues for year one of Ramsey County's Cleveland Avenue Reconstruction Project.  

A signed detour will be in place using Larpenteur Avenue, Highway 280 and Energy Park Drive.  The intersection of Cleveland & Buford Avenues will remain open. Vehicle traffic coming to campus can use Larpenteur to Cleveland to Buford Avenues or use other alternative routes.

One sidewalk along Cleveland Avenue will remain open during the project.

During the Cleveland construction the St Paul Circulator (route 124) will continue to serve existing stops as much as feasible.  Watch for rider alert signs at bus shelters in the area. The Campus Connector (route 121) will be detoured, but no stops are affected.  Maps are below.

For additional information, see the project webpage.
