I-94 east closure Brooklyn Center planned Sept 22-25

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — A section of Interstate 94 east in Brooklyn Center is scheduled to close this weekend for paving, weather permitting.

The closure of I-94 east from Interstate 694 to Highway 252 in Brooklyn Center will start at 10 p.m. Friday, Sept. 22 and is scheduled to reopen at 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 25.
The detour is to Highway 169 south to I-394 east.

The ramps to and from Shingle Creek Parkway to I-94 east will be closed.  I-94 east could see some lane closures from Highway 252 to Highway 55 but the interstate and ramps will remain open.

Crews have complete paving on Interstate 94 west and Interstate 94 east from Highway 55 to Highway 252.

Also, the ramp from Third Street in downtown Minneapolis to I-394 west will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.

These closures are part of the I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center project that started March 20. The project is resurfacing nine miles of freeway, repairing 50 bridges and repairing all ramps from Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis to Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center.

The work this year is expected to be complete by the end of October. Crews will return in spring of 2018 for ramp repairs. The project is scheduled to be complete by July of 2018.
