It's happening again: Interstate 94 is closing in Minneapolis for the second weekend in a row as part of a resurfacing project.
Last weekend, the eastbound lanes shut down between I-35W and Highway 280.
This weekend, the westbound side will close. The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) says crews will start with closing the ramps leading to I-94.
"We're going to start closing ramps at 8 (p.m.) and then at 10 (p.m.), we're going to shut down the highway," MnDOT spokesperson Dave Aeikens said. "And then it will stay closed until 4 a.m. Monday."
Drivers will be detoured to I-35E, Highway 36 and I-35W.
Looking ahead to next weekend, both directions of I-94 will close from I-35W to Highway 280.
