Highway 62 Closes Again this Weekend; I-35W and I-94 Also Affected by Road Work

September 21, 2018 06:47 AM

It's already been a difficult week for drivers with rain and fog messing with the commutes and now construction work is about to get in the way this weekend.

Highway 62 eastbound is closing this weekend from I-494 to Highway 100 as part of an ongoing paving project.


Lanes will shut down at 8 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday, with the detour taking drivers to Interstate 494.

On Monday, the Tracy Avenue Bridge over Highway 62 in Edina will close until Saturday Sept. 29. The ramps from Highway 62 to Tracy Avenue will stay open. Learn more about the project.

Although Interstate 35W will stay open this weekend, there will be lane closures in place between County Road C in Roseville and Fourth Street in Minneapolis.

Lane restrictions kick in Friday at 7 p.m. The southbound work should be clear by 11 a.m. Saturday, but crews have until 8 a.m. on Sunday to finish on the northbound side. The Minnesota Department of Transporation is also hoping to reopen the ramp from I-35W southbound to Highway 280 by the weekend. Learn more about the project.

Meanwhile, I-94 is set to close in both directions overnight from I-35W to I-394 starting at 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. The work is part of the larger I-35W: Downtown to the Crosstown Project.

And one more here: Shepard Road in St. Paul will close this weekend as part of the High Bridge Project. The roadway will shut down both Saturday and Sunday between Randolph Avenue and Eagle Parkway from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Drivers will be detoured to West 7th Street.
