A long list of new ramp closures will go into place this week across the metro.

If you're traveling near the airport, the ramp from Highway 5 westbound to Interstate 494 eastbound closes on Monday. Starting on Wednesday, the ramp from I-494 westbound to 34th Avenue closes. On Thursday, the ramp from Highway 5 westbound to 34th Avenue closes. All three ramps will remain closed thru October.


In Maple Grove, the ramp from I-94 eastbound to Weaver Lake Road closes Monday. The ramp will reopen three weeks later on Aug. 24. The good news is the ramps at Maple Grove Parkway reopened about a week ago.

Meanwhile, two new ramp closures just went into place near the I-694/I-494 in the east metro. Here's the updated list of closures:
