Ready or not, here come more weekend closures. For the next several weeks, we'll see back-to-back weekend closures along Interstate 94 in the north metro.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT), I-94 westbound will shut down between Highway 100 and Brooklyn Boulevard in Brooklyn Center starting at 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday.

The work is part of a larger repair and resurfacing project. Drivers have a couple of options for detours: Travel north on Highway 252, to Highway 610 and Highway 169 or head south on Highway 100 to I-394 and Highway 169.

MnDOT says this project will require four directional weekend closures. The first three will happen back to back, starting with this weekend.
