Section of I-94 to close for the weekend in Minneapolis

Cone Zone for the weekend of Sept. 8-10

Multiple road closures will be happening on interstates in the Twin Cities and the surrounding metro area this weekend.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will temporarily be closing the eastbound lanes of I-94 in Minneapolis in order for crews to paint the Plymouth Avenue bridge starting Friday night.

According to MnDOT, the closure will begin at 10 p.m. Friday and last through 5 a.m. Monday, September 11, and will involve the eastbound lanes between I-394 and I-694. The following ramps will also be closed due to the work:

  • Broadway AVenue to eastbound I-94
  • Dowling Avenue to eastbound I-94
  • 49th Avenue/48th Avenue/North Lyndale Avenue to eastbound I-94
  • 53rd Avenue/West Lyndale Avenue to eastbound I-94
  • Southbound Highway 252 to eastbound I-94/southbound Highway 100/eastbound I-694

A detour using I-494, Highway 169 and I-394 will be in place throughout the closure.

The westbound lanes in that same stretch are scheduled to be closed next weekend.
