Two I-494 ramps to close for the upcoming weekend
Concrete rehabilitation project continues

(ROSEVILLE, Minn.) – Motorists will encounter delays and minor detours as two I-494 ramps in Bloomington close this weekend.

Both the ramp from 34th Avenue to eastbound I-494 and the ramp from westbound Hwy 5 to eastbound I-494 will close at 10 p.m. Friday, May 18.

Motorists are advised to follow the posted detours.

Both ramps will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, May 21.

The ramp closures are part of a larger project to rehabilitate concrete pavement at several locations throughout the Twin Cities Metro Area. Details on future lane closures at other locations will be issued as they become available.

When complete, the project will result in a smoother ride along several high-volume segments of Twin Cities Metro Area roadway.
