Overnight ramp closure on I-394 in Minnetonka is scheduled for Sept. 26 


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists on I-394 in Minnetonka and Plymouth will encounter an overnight ramp closure this week as crews reconfigure the ramps and extend an auxiliary lane on the busy interstate.
At 9 p.m., Thursday, Sept. 26, the westbound I-394 ramp to Plymouth Road will close. The ramp will re-open at 6 a.m. Friday, Sept. 27.


During the ramp closure, motorists are advised to use alternate routes to access Plymouth Road.


The closure is part of a roadway project will improve the flow of traffic on westbound I-394 by removing the weaving from through lanes and providing better access to I-494.  The improvements include reconfiguring the exit ramps to northbound I-494 and southbound I-494 from one exit to two exits, extending the westbound auxiliary lane through the Plymouth Road interchange, resurfacing the roadway, and upgrading the roadway drainage system and striping the road. The project will be complete by late October.  


To sign up for the project’s e-mail updates or for more information, visit the project’s website at mndot.gov/metro/projects/i394andi494.
