ROSEVILLE, Minn. – On Monday, April 10, the I-394 ramps to and from Washington Ave. in downtown Minneapolis will close through late June. Part of N. 3rd Ave between Washington Ave. and the C parking ramp will also close . These closures are needed so crews can begin work to redesign the intersection and rebuild the ramps.

Motorists should follow the posted detours below:

  • Eastbound I-394 to downtown Minneapolis: N. 4th St. ramp to N. 2nd Ave. to Washington Ave.
  • Downtown Minneapolis to westbound I-394: Washington Ave. to 1st Ave. to 7th St. to Twins Way

N. 3rd Ave. from N. 5th St. up to the construction area will temporarily become a two-way road to maintain access to the C parking ramp.
