I-694 work delayed  between  Hwy 100 in Brooklyn Center, I-35W in Arden Hills


Roseville, Minn.— The start of a planned concrete pavement repair, drainage and bridge deck replacement project on Interstate 694 between Hwy 100 in Brooklyn Center and Interstate 35W in Arden Hills was delayed last night due to an equipment breakdown. Planned closures on the westbound lanes of the interstate between East River Road and Hwy 100 in Brooklyn Center are scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. tonight, along with closures on the eastbound lanes of the interstate in the same area. At the same time, the ramp from East River Road to westbound I-694 will close tonight until mid-October. During the work, motorists will find long-term lane closures and ramp and loop closures along the interstate.


I-694 traffic will be a single lane in each direction between East River Road and Hwy 10 in Brooklyn Center beginning at 7 p.m. tonight. By early Monday morning, the westbound lanes of the interstate will be shifted to the outside of the roadway and motorists will find two lanes through the area daily between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. The road will be a single lane nightly between 7 p.m. and 6 a.m. the following morning.


Both westbound and eastbound I-694 will be restricted to a single lane between Hwy 100 and East River Road tonight and will be shifted to the outside lanes of the roadway before Tuesday morning’s commute.

During the week of June 16, westbound lane closures will be expanded between I-35W and Hwy 100 through the end of the project in early November. Traffic restrictions will be the same as above. Ramps/loops between I-35W and Hwy 100 will be closed for up to ten days at a time during this construction season. No two interchanges will be closed in a row so motorist will have access to and from the interstate at the next interchange from the one closed.

Watch for advance notice signs on all ramps for exact dates of closures. Information also will be provided in regular e-mail updates.
