I-94 Exit Ramp to 7th St

Project Type:
A cooperative project between the City of Minneapolis and MnDot.  The project received a Minnesota Transportation Economic Development (TED) Program Grant.

Why is this project being done?
Reconfiguring the exit ramp from 5th St to 7th St is a recommendation in the City's Downtown Action Plan.  It will improve the efficiency of Minneapolis' downtown one-way street network and allow for improved mobility and access to Downtown from the Cedar-Riverside Neighborhood once the existing 5th St Ramp is re-purposed (funded as a separate project).

Project Limits:
From I-94 Westbound over I-35W and connecting to Downtown at 7th St S.

Council Approved Layout

Construction Start Date:
Tentatively scheduled to begin in June or July, 2015.

Duration of Construction:
The project will take approximately one year to complete.

Traffic Impact:
Traffic entering Downtown from I-94 will continue to use the existing ramp to 5th St S during construction.  There will be some minor intersection work and re-striping and signing activities at the 7th St S and 13th Ave S intersection and along 7th St S between 13th Ave and 11th Ave S.
