As part of the Rosedale Shopping Center expansion project, improvements to the intersection of County Road B2 and southbound Snelling Avenue ramps were required. Improvements include the addition of a second left turn lane for westbound County Road B2 into the mall, a new signal light and ADA sidewalk improvements. The addition of the left turn lane should help reduce some congestion in this intersection.
The Rosedale Shopping Center, the Minnesota Department of Transportation and Ramsey County are paying for the improvements.
Road work is expected to begin after Labor Day and will be completed in early November.
During construction, a temporary traffic signal will be in place. Traffic on County Road B2 will be reduced to one lane in each direction. Access to Rosedale Center at this entrance will remain open at all times.
