UPDATE: Eastbound I-94 closure in Minneapolis cancelled

Closure cancelled due to cold and wet weather


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The April 27-30 closure of eastbound I-94 in Minneapolis between I-35W and Highway 280 has been canceled due to impending inclement weather.


The eastbound I-94 closure will be rescheduled for a later date this spring. Updates will be made as soon as the schedule is confirmed.


The I-94 improvement project between downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul features Smart Lane technology to improve safety and congestion. The project also includes resurfacing, which will create a smoother ride for motorists and extend the lifespan of the roadway, drainage improvements, bridge maintenance work, reconstruction of the shoulders, and realignment of the lanes.
