Drivers encountered delays Friday morning in Burnsville.

KSTP's Matt Belanger reported slowdowns along northbound Interstate 35W near the Burnsville split. 

Emergency responders were at the scene. Additional information was not immediately available.

Meanwhile, Belanger reported the Minnesota Department of Transportation has postponed work along eastbound Interstate 94 in St. Paul due to the forecast.

There will be weekend closures along Highway 62 west between Highway 77 and Interstate 35W. That closure goes into effect at 10 p.m. Friday and lasts until 5 a.m. Monday.

The suggested detour is Highway 77 south to Interstate 494 west to Interstate 35W north.

Additionally, Highway 55 east will be closed between Highway 100 and Highway 169 from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. 

The suggested detour is Interstate 394.
