Hwy 252, westbound I-94 weekend closures completed

Roseville, Minn.—Monday morning commuters will find smooth sailing on Hwy 252 and westbound I-694 in Brooklyn Center. This weekend’s closure of the roadways was completed a day-and-a-half earlier than planned and all ramps and loops between Hwy 252 and I-694 were opened by 8:30 p.m. Saturday and westbound I-94 at I-694 reopened to traffic at 10:30 p.m. Saturday.

The first of several planned weekend closures this weekend on the I-694 North Central WEST project was needed as construction crews removed half of the I-694 bridge decks over Hwy 252 and westbound I-694 so the decks can be rebuilt.

However, traffic restrictions are now in place on I-694 corridor through early November. 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 also are planned through early November 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.
