Watch for nighttime I-494 lane closures June 10-15
Concrete resurfacing project begins


(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists may encounter delays on both directions of I-494 in Bloomington beginning Sunday, June 10.

The left lane of both directions of I-494 between east of the Minnesota River Bridge and Interstate 35E will close at 6 p.m. June 10 through June 14.

All lanes will reopen by 5 a.m. June 11 through June 15.

The lane closures are necessary as crews resurface the bridge spanning the Minnesota River.

This work is weather dependent and may be rescheduled in case of inclement weather.


The work is 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 stretches of Twin Cities Metro Area roadway.
