ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Lane configurations for Interstate 94 in Minneapolis at the Lowry Hill Tunnel will change Monday, July 24, weather permitting.

Starting late Monday, two lanes of traffic will travel in each direction through the tunnel. The inside lane of both the eastbound and westbound side of the tunnel will be closed.

This configuration will remain in place for at least one week before traffic is switched to the westbound tunnel.

The ramp from I-35W north to I-94 west, the ramp from Highway 55 to I-94 east and the ramp from Fourth Avenue to I-94 west will remain closed.
