ROSEVILLE, Minn.— The third and final weekend of closures is scheduled for westbound Interstate 694 between I-35W and Long Lake Road in Arden Hills and New Brighton this weekend as crews continue concrete pavement repairs.

The westbound interstate will be reduced to a single lane of traffic beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 4, and will close to traffic at 10 p.m. Weather permitting, the roadway will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 7.

While the interstate is closed, the ramps from northbound and southbound I-35W to westbound I-694 also will close.

During the closures, motorists will be detoured on I-35W, west on Highway 10 and Highway 610 and south on Highway 252 to the westbound interstate.

Concrete pavement repair, drainage improvements and bridge deck replacement began in mid-June on I-694 between Highway 100 in Brooklyn Center and Interstate 35W in Arden Hills. Work is expected to be completed by mid-November.
