I-94 ramp closures in Minneapolis start April 16

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Beginning Monday morning, April 16, motorists will experience several ramp closures to and from westbound Interstate 94 near downtown Minneapolis, including:

  • Westbound I-94 ramp to 11th Street
  • Eastbound I-394 ramp to westbound I-94
  • Northbound Lyndale Avenue S ramp to westbound I-94

All three ramps will remain closed through mid-June 2018.

For the westbound I-94 ramp to 11th Street closure, motorists should follow the posted detour and continue on westbound I-94 to the Lyndale Avenue/Hennepin Avenue exit and follow northbound Hennepin Avenue to 12th Street. Motorists who use the westbound I-94 ramp to 11th Street to access Grant Street and Fifth Avenue S will also need to find alternate routes. Access to 11th Street, Grant Street and Fifth Avenue S from northbound I-35W will remain open.

The eastbound I-394 ramp to westbound I-94 closure detour is to take northbound Highway 100, prior to the I-394/I-94 junction, to eastbound Highway 55, to northbound Lyndale Avenue and then to the westbound I-94 entrance ramp. Access from eastbound I-394 to eastbound I-94 will remain open.

The northbound Lyndale Avenue S ramp to westbound I-94 closure detour route is to continue northbound onto Lyndale Avenue N and use the westbound I-94 entrance ramp just north of Seventh Street. Access from Lyndale Avenue S to westbound I-394 will remain open.

These ramp closures are part of the 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown and I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center projects.
