Updated: August 16, 2019 10:15 AM

Drivers living in the southeast metro probably can't wait until the work along Interstate 494 is done for good.

For the fourth weekend in a row, crews will spend the weekend resurfacing I-494. It's part of a larger project to repave and repair bridges along an eight-mile stretch between the Minnesota River Bridge in Eagan and 3rd Avenue in South St. Paul.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation tells 5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Traffic Reporter Josie Smith the work is far from over, and drivers can expect to see more full and partial closures along I-494 this summer and fall.

Lane closures begin at 6 p.m. Friday along I-494 eastbound between I-35E and Highway 52. The road will be reduced to one lane on the westbound side at 9 p.m. A number of ramps will shut down starting at 7 p.m.

  • Highway 52 to I-494 westbound
  • Highway 3 to I-494 westbound
  • Dodd Road to I-494 westbound
  • I-494 westbound at I-35E

Meanwhile, I-35W will stay open this weekend north of downtown Minneapolis. The bad news is, drivers will encounter single lane work in both directions between I-94 and Washington Avenue as part of a resurfacing and concrete repair project.

The lane closures will begin at 8 p.m. Friday and clear out of the way at 5 a.m. Monday.

There will also be some overnight lane closures along Highway 100 in St. Louis Park Friday night.

The work will take place on the southbound side between I-394 and Excelsior Blvd. The roadway will be reduced to one lane starting at 7 p.m. Friday until 6 a.m. Saturday.

Highway 169 will get some lane closures again this weekend. According to MnDOT, the roadway will be down to one lane on the northbound side between the Bloomington Ferry Bridge and Pioneer Trail in Eden Prairie. The work will take place on Sunday starting at 7 p.m. Lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
