This page covers I-94 from the I-35E interchange near downtown St. Paul to the I-494/694 interchange in Woodbury. This section includes a 1.4 mile duplex with US 61 and a 2.8 mile duplex with US 10. US 52 has a hidden duplex with I-94 along the western 0.7 mile, and US 12 has a hidden duplex along the entire length. Total length of this section is approximately 6.9 miles.
Formerly known as Hudson Road, and still called that by some, this section of I-94 follows old US 12, and is the primary route between St. Paul and the eastern suburbs. Much of the segment is old and is showing its age, except for that part in/near downtown St. Paul, which was reconstructed and improved during the early 1990s. This reconstruction moved many ramps from the left side to the right side, provided 3 lanes in each direction, and provided a direct connection from southbound I-35E to the US 52 Lafayette Bridge (a movement which formerly had to use city streets). East of St. Paul, however, traffic troubles accumulate, though these are being partially mitigated with completion of 6-laning of I-94 near 3M headquarters in Maplewood.
