Drivers traveling in the north metro will face a couple of detours this weekend.
Highway 100 will be closed in both directions in Brooklyn Center from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. The southbound lanes will shut down at Brooklyn Boulevard. Traffic will be detoured to the on and off ramps at Brooklyn Boulevard. The northbound side will close from County Road 81 to Brooklyn Boulevard. The posted detour takes drivers to I-394, Highway 169, and I-694.
Highway 169 southbound remains closed from Highway 62 to Valleyview Road. Crews hope to have the lanes open by the end of the month.
Expect delays on Highway 101 in Rogers this weekend. The roadway is reduced to one lane in both directions just north of I-94 until fall.
In Central Minnesota, Highway 27 is closed from I-94 in Alexandria to Grant County Road 5 in Hoffman. Highway 10 is single-lane in both directions from Cushing to Motley. The project was initially set to wrap up a week ago. Crews are now hoping to finish it by mid-July.
Along I-35 in Owatonna, the roadway is reduced to one lane in both directions. Expect major delays on Friday and Sunday nights.
Next week, Twin Cities' motorists will encounter more lane restrictions. In Inver Grove Heights, expect alternating lane closures on Highway 55 westbound from Concord Boulevard to Argenta Trail. The project starts Monday and continues until early August.
Bridge inspections will bring single lane traffic to the Stillwater Lift Bridge for the next two weeks. Prepare for alternating lane closures Mondays through Fridays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 14 through July 25.
