Lyndale Avenue highway ramp to close

The Lyndale Avenue entrance ramp to eastbound Highway 62 was the latest ramp set to close for construction on the ongoing Crosstown project, the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) reported.

The entrance ramp will close 6 a.m. March 3, weather permitting. It was scheduled to reopen in fall 2009.

The only other ramp connecting Lyndale Avenue and Highway 62 that remains open, an exit from the westbound highway lanes, will close in May, MnDOT reported.

When construction near Lyndale Avenue wraps up in fall 2009, there will be four highway exit and entrance ramps, more than the three available before construction started.
