Highway 61 ramps all re-opened

The Jamaica Avenue ramps to and from southbound Highway 61 in Cottage Grove have re-opened as progress continues on the project to re-pave the highway between St. Paul Park and Hastings, according to an update from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

No additional ramp closures are planned, the update says.

Highway traffic between Innovation Road and 70th Street is still two-way on the northbound lanes, the update says, due to ongoing marking, signing and shoulder work on the southbound side.

The four-way stop signs at Innovation Road and East Point Douglas Road have been removed, according to the update.

The project is scheduled to be complete by the end of October, the update says.
