ST. PAUL, Minn. (WCCO) — A big road project gets underway Monday in St. Paul, and those who work near the Capitol will be affected.

The Robert Street bridge that goes over interstates 94 and 35E is now closed. It will stay closed until late May as crews do some repairs and a resurfacing project.

A marked detour will be to use 12th Street to get to Jackson and Cedar streets.
