A new construction project on Interstate 94 in Minneapolis and Brooklyn Center will result in lane restrictions beginning Monday.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation said lane restrictions are planned from west of Shingle Creek Parkway to Minnesota Highway 252 if weather permits. The interstate will be reduced to two lanes as a bridge over Shingle Creek is repaired.

Other ramp and lane closures are expected to start by the end of March as the project continues.

The work is part of a $46.3 million maintenance and preservation project that includes work on 50 bridges, the Lowry Hill Tunnel, resurfacing of the interstate and ramps and other safety improvements.

MnDOT spokesman Dave Aeikens said most of the work will be completed by this fall, but some projects will continue into the spring and summer of 2018.
