Weekend closures planned for Hwy 52, I-94 for I-694 bridge deck removal in Brooklyn Center

Roseville, Minn.-- The first of several planned weekend closures is set for this weekend on the I-694 North Central WEST project. Northbound and southbound Hwy 252 at I-694 will be closed over the weekend to begin bridge deck demolition for the interstate bridges crossing Hwy 252. At the same time, westbound I-94 will be closed at I-694 to remove half of the interstate bridge crossing I-94.

Motorists will encounter single lane traffic beginning at 7 p.m. Friday and all three roadways will close at 10 p.m. A signed detour will guide travelers to their destinations. Weather permitting, the roads will reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday, June 24.

The traffic restrictions are needed for concrete pavement repair, drainage and bridge deck replacement project on I-694 between Hwy 100 in Brooklyn Center and Interstate 35W in Arden Hills. Long-term lane closures and ramp and loop closures are planned through early November during concrete pavement repair, bridge deck replacement and drainage work on I-694 between Hwy 100 in Brooklyn Center and I-35W in Arden Hills.

Traffic is restricted to two lanes of traffic daily from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily and traffic is a single lane in each direction each night from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. the following morning.     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.
