Hwy 52 Pavement Improvement Project begins Spring 2021

Upcoming Weekend Directional Closures of Hwy 52 Closure

If you’re traveling on northbound Hwy 52 between I-494 near Inver Grove Heights and I-94 in St. Paul you can expect a detour for the next several weekends, weather permitting. Plus, you may encounter week-long ramp closures leading up to weekend directional closures.

Closure Planned for Southbound Hwy 52 weekend of May 7-9

If you are traveling on Hwy 52 between I-94 in St. Paul and I-494 in Inver Grove Heights you can expect another detour this weekend; however, this weekend it will be southbound Hwy 52, weather permitting.

Beginning at 9 p.m. Fri, May 7, southbound Hwy 52 will be closed between Plato Blvd. in St. Paul and I-494 in Inver Grove Heights through 5 a.m. Mon, May 10. You can expect to encounter lane and ramp closures to begin prior to the full closure at 9 p.m.

  • Detour: During the closure, motorists should follow the signed detour using eastbound I-94, southbound Hwy 61 and westbound I-494 to access Hwy 52.

*Note: Northbound Highway 52 will still require one more closure for the final lift of pavement once temperatures get a little warmer.

Ramp Closure at Butler Ave. begins Monday, May 10

Beginning at 6 a.m. Monday, May 10 the Northbound Hwy 52 ramp to Butler Ave. will be closed. The ramp will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, May 17.

Please visit for help planning around this and all other metro interstate and highway closures.

About this Project

While crews have Hwy 52 closed, they will be resurfacing the road between I-494 in Inver Grove Heights and Hwy 156/Concord St. in St. Paul as well as repairing concrete between Concord St. and Plato Blvd. in St. Paul. During construction there will also be several ramp closures in this area that will last up to one week.
