SAINT PAUL, MN (October 30, 2019) – On November 4, 2019, Saint Paul Public Works will close Summit Avenue from Syndicate to Dunlap to all vehicle, bike and pedestrian traffic until October 2020 for a year-long bridge demolition and reconstruction project.

The vehicle and bike/pedestrian detours will be signed and use Grand Avenue. There will be no parking allowed on the northside of Grand Avenue between Syndicate and Dunlap for the protected bike path.

From November 4-10, 2019, Ayd Mill Road, which runs underneath the Summit Avenue bridge, will be closed to all traffic from Selby to Grand Avenue. Both the Selby and Hamline/Ashland access ramps to Ayd Mill Road will be closed to all traffic.

  • All southbound vehicles cannot access Ayd Mill Road on Selby. Vehicles must travel south on Snelling Avenue. Then turn left and head east on Grand Avenue. Turn right and head south on Ayd Mill Road.

Beginning November 11, Ayd Mill Road will be restricted to one northbound lane and one southbound lane underneath the Summit Avenue Bridge to ensure work zone safety and needed equipment and contractor project site access. Traffic delays can be expected.
