It's the final weekend for road closures on I-94, I-494

Updated: September 27, 2019 06:58 AM

The 2019 construction season has been filled with weekend road closures and this weekend will be no exception.

In St. Paul, Interstate 94 eastbound closes from Highway 280 to I-35E for resurfacing. As difficult as this will be, Minnesota Department of Transportation officials said it's the last weekend crews will need to close the road for this project.

The closure starts at 10 p.m. Friday and wraps up by 5 a.m. Monday. The detour takes drivers to Highway 280, Highway 36, and Interstate 35E.

Although it may feel like the road work on Interstate 494 in the southeast metro will never end, MnDOT officials also said that this is the last weekend they'll have to shut I-494 down during the 2019 construction season.

For the second weekend in a row, the westbound lanes are closing between I-35E and Highway 5. Crews will continue their work on the eastbound lanes in 2020.

A few ramps near downtown Minneapolis are set to close this weekend, too. The ramps from I-35W northbound to Third Street, Fourth Street, and Washington Avenue will begin closing at 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. The ramps from Highway 55/Hiawatha Avenue westbound to Washington Avenue and Third Street will close during the same time frame.

In south Minneapolis, I-35W southbound shuts down from I-94 to Highway 62 at 10 p.m. Friday until early Saturday morning.
