Kellogg Blvd Construction Project

Kellogg Blvd construction project will close Kellogg Parking Ramp from July 30 - September 30

Effective Monday, July 30, the City of Saint Paul will be closing the westbound lanes of Kellogg Blvd from Washington Avenue to West 7th Street to replace bridge expansion joints and resurface the concrete deck.  During this project, the Kellogg Parking Ramp will be closed.  The anticipated reopen date is scheduled for September 30.  

Where do I park when the RiverCentre and Kellogg Parking Ramps are closed?

Five alternative parking locations have been designated to accept RiverCentre and Kellogg contract parking transponders during this closure.  Click here for a map of the designated alternative parking locations.

  • Capital City Plaza Ramp – 50 East 4th St. (Take a ticket upon entry and show ticket and transponder at exit)
  • Lawson Parking Ramp – 11 W 5th St. (Take a ticket upon entry and show ticket and transponder at exit)

  • Smith Avenue Transit Center – 145 Smith Avenue North (scan in and out just like Kellogg Ramp)

Will my transponder work in the alternative lots?


Am I guaranteed a spot at my preferred ramp?

No.  Spots are held at all ramps, but they are first come, first served. Allow yourself extra time in case your preferred location is full.

Do you have any tips for me?

Allow yourself extra time to park, in case your preferred location is full.  The outer locations tend to have more availability.

How long will the Kellogg Ramp be closed?

The Kellogg Parking Ramp is scheduled to reopen on September 30. As with any construction project, this date could be earlier or later.

Will I have to pay additional money to park elsewhere?

No, your contract parking monthly rate will cover the costs at the designated alternative ramps.  If you choose to park elsewhere, you will be responsible for payment.
