Weekend closure of I-494 in Bloomington/Richfield canceled
Adverse weather will delay this weekend’s construction
ROSEVILLE, Minn. – This weekend’s closure of eastbound Interstate 494 between I-35W and Cedar Avenue in Bloomington and Richfield has been canceled because of the expected inclement weather.
Weather permitting; the road closure is rescheduled for Oct. 25. The closure is necessary for crews to resurface the roadway.
This work is part of the I-494 improvement project. The overall project will improve the flow of traffic, improve the road surface for motorists, reduce roadway maintenance needs by replacing guard rails with concrete median barriers and improve future opportunities that match local development goals due to replacement of the Xerxes Avenue Bridge.
