Starting May 30, expect lane restrictions, ramp closures and detours when travelling on I-494 or I-694 in the Woodbury area.
Tamarack Road will be down to a single lane between Weir and Bielenberg drives starting at 6 a.m. Crews will also be closing the Tamarack Road entrance ramp to southbound I-494 and the northbound I-494 exit ramp to Tamarack Road. A detour will take drivers to the Valley Creek Road interchange.
In addition, eastbound 10th Street between Highway 120/Century Avenue and Inwood Avenue will be reduced to a single lane and the 10th Street ramp to northbound I-694 will close to local traffic. A detour will take drivers to the 34th Street North/Old Highway 5 interchange.
These lanes and ramps will remain closed through September and are needed to accommodate detoured interstate traffic from the I-94/I-494/I-694 interchange reconstruction project.
The I-94/I-494/I-694 interchange and bridge reconstruction project is being done to provide a smoother, safer, long-lasting road with updated bridges and some mobility improvements. Construction is expected to be complete by fall 2020.
