Weekend closure planned for eastbound I-694 at I-94 in
Brooklyn Center

Eastbound I-694 traffic will divert onto I-94 to bypass closure

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter single lane traffic and possible delays this weekend in Brooklyn Center as eastbound Interstate 694 at I-94 in Brooklyn Center closes at 8 p.m. Friday, May 9. The closure is needed as crews resurface the road.

During the closure, all eastbound traffic will be diverted onto eastbound I-94 which runs parallel to I-694 east of the Mississippi River. Once traffic is past the work area, motorists will be able to merge back onto the eastbound lanes of I-694 or continue on I-94 into Minneapolis.

Weather permitting, eastbound I-694 will reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday, May 12.

Concrete repairs, resurfacing and drainage work extends the life of the interstate and saves money while providing smoother and more reliable transportation for Twin Cities’ travelers.
