Motorists will encounter road closures as crews begin bridge work at the Interstate 94/494/694 interchange starting on April 12.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says beginning at 8 p.m. on April 12, the eastbound lanes of I-94 at the I-94/494/694 interchange will close to all traffic.


At that same time, the southbound I-694 to eastbound I-94 loop ramp and the eastbound I-94 to northbound I-694 loop ramp will also close.

MnDOT says motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour of southbound I-494 to the Tamarack exit, then back onto northbound I-494.

By 7 p.m. on April 12, both directions of Tamarack Road between Weir Drive and Bielenberg Drive and the I-494 Tamarack interchange will be closed. Traffic will be detoured to the Valley Creek Road interchange to accomodate the eastbound I-94 detour.

All lanes and ramps are scheduled to reopen by 5 a.m. on April 15, MnDOT says.

The I-94/494/694 interchange and bridge reconstruction project aims to provide a smoother, safer, long-lasting road with updated bridges and some mobility improvements, MnDOT said.
