A portion of eastbound I-94 and the loop ramp to northbound I-694 will be closed periodically this weekend, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation. 

Closure schedule:

  • Friday, July 5 (overnight) - 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Sunday, July 7 (overnight) - 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.
  • Monday, July 8 (overnight) - 9 p.m. to 5 a.m.

Traffic will be detoured to southbound I-494, to Tamarack Road and then northbound I-494.

The interchange and bridge safety reconstruction project consists of rebuilding the ramp to improve the curvature. The southbound auxiliary lane, buffer lane and reconstructed ramp will provide more space for trucks to slow and better navigate the ramp, according to MnDOT.
