The weather should be perfect over the next few days for road crews to get a little work done. A detour will be set up through the weekend while Interstate 35W is closed in Richfield for concrete repairs.

All this week, drivers have been encountering lane restrictions along I-35W between 76th Street and 66th Street. Those restrictions are expected to lift Friday, just in time for a full closure of the interstate between Highway 62 and Interstate 494.


The road will shut down starting at 8 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Drivers can use Highway 100 or Cedar Avenue instead.

Traffic backups are possible this weekend in the southeast metro, too.
