There is a crazy weekend ahead of us in the Twin Cities for traffic and road closures, and even if you are leaving the metro, you may run into some delays.

KSTP traffic reporter Josie Smith outlined some major projects:

This weekend, Interstate 35E will be shut down in both directions between Hwy. 36 and I-94, the alternates will be I-94 and I-694. The shutdown will take place on Friday at 10 p.m. and continue to Monday at 5 a.m, as they remove bridges.

On I-694, eastbound lanes at I-94 and Brooklyn Center will be shut down, beginning at 8 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday morning while they resurface.

I-35 is still under construction in Owatonna, requiring lane closures. In both directions this construction will last until the fall. Friday and Sunday afternoons have been reported as very busy.

Central Minnesota on Highway 10, both directions, into the city of Rice has narrow lanes, but they remain open.  

Highway 10 from Cushing to Motley in both directions has lane closures down to single lanes that will cause delays.

Heading towards Duluth I-35 North bound there is a short stretch near Scanlon as they work on the St. Louis river Bridge. Traffic will be down to one lane, however it is not causing a lot of problems.

Monday Morning, major projects begin as 169 Southbound at Bren Road closes on Monday June 9th continuing to Monday June 23rd, the detour will take you to 394 and 494.

In White Bear Lake there traffic is down to a single lane on Highway 61 in both directions between Highway 96 and White Bear Avenue. This will continue from Monday June 9 until this Fall.
