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.
The ramps from Highway 52 to I-494 eastbound will close starting at 6 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday. Drivers can expect single-lane work on I-494 eastbound from Highway 62 to Seventh Avenue during this same time frame.
