  2. On Friday, 9/26/14, the Kellogg Boulevard Bridge will be COMPLETELY closed. The City of St Paul has changed their plans to keep Kellogg Blvd open for Friday through Sunday. The Kellogg Bridge will be completely closed to through traffic and they will not allow access to lot C East where the Metropolitan State University shuttle goes. Union Depot has agreed to open up a drive lane underneath the Highway 52 bridge. See attachment. All traffic will have to go through the lot C West entrance and drive under the Highway 52 bridge to Lot C East. The driver will have to take an alternate route to get to and from campus - probably down 7th Street and then head south on Wall Street. The city will place up detour signs starting at the Kellogg/Mounds bridge - directing to 7th directing left/west down 7th directing left/south on Wall directing left/east on Kellogg directing right into the Union Depot lot. From there, the city or contractor will have flag workers directing under the bridge into the east lot. View Google Map.
