Things are about to get a lot more complicated inside the Interstate 94 work zone just in time for the Minnesota Twins Home Opener on Monday. 

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, crews will close another lane of I-94 eastbound from 53rd Avenue in Brooklyn Center to Dowling Avenue in Minneapolis. This will leave open only two lanes of eastbound traffic. At the same time, the ramp from 49th Avenue to I-94 eastbound in north Minneapolis will shut down for two to three months.

The left lane of I-94 westbound from Highway 55 to 49th Avenue is also scheduled to close on Monday. On Tuesday, crews will shut down a second lane on the westbound side, reducing the roadway to two lanes in both directions until fall. The ramp from Hennepin/Lyndale Avenues to I-94 eastbound will close down for two weeks starting Tuesday and more ramp closures are scheduled in the coming weeks. Learn more about the project.

Meanwhile, east metro drivers will be funneled into a single lane along Snelling Avenue starting Monday. The roadway will be reduced to one lane in both directions from Larpenteur Avenue to Como Avenue. Lane restrictions will lift temporarily for the Back to the 50's car event in June and long-term work will clear in time for the Minnesota State Fair in August. Learn more about the project

In the north metro, a major ramp is closing on Monday. Access from Highway 10 westbound to Interstate 35W northbound will close starting after the morning commute through August. A new ramp will eventually be built in the area to carry traffic from I-35W northbound to County Road H in Arden Hills. Learn more about the project.
