Drivers will encounter more road closures this week along Interstate 94 near downtown Minneapolis.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the eastbound side of I-94 will close between I-394 and I-35W on Monday starting at 10 p.m. until 5 a.m. Tuesday.


Crews are hoping to close the westbound lanes overnight Wednesday evening into Thursday morning.

Crews will be doing some bridge work as part of the larger I-35W: Downtown to the Crosstown Project.

Additionally, the commute in the north metro is about to get a lot more difficult.

Starting Wednesday morning, drivers will encounter single lane traffic on I-35W northbound near the Forest Lake Split. Watch for barrels a half mile south of Freeway Drive up to I-35 in Lino Lakes. The restrictions will stay in place until early November 2019, as part of a resurfacing and bridge project. By Thursday afternoon, drivers will also encounter some major changes to their commute on I-35E and I-35. The northbound lanes near the split will be separated by a concrete median barrier. Stay to the right if you are planning to exit at Highway 97.
