2 weeks of overnight closures on Interstate 94 in Minneapolis to repair damaged bridges

The closures will be in place beginning at 10 p.m. each night.

Repairs on two bridges over Interstate 94 in Minneapolis that were damaged by a truck in August will result in overnight closures beginning this week. 

A pedestrian bridge at 22nd Ave. and the 25th Ave. bridge near Augsburg University were damaged when a truck hit them Aug. 5. The repair work will happen during the overnight hours beginning Thursday, with MnDOT planning to close the westbound lanes of I-94 each night for the next two weeks. 

The closures will be in place each night from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. through Nov. 9. 

The detour on westbound I-94 will take motorists to the Riverside Ave. exit, then back onto the interstate via the 25th Ave. ramp. 

Beams were damaged on the 25th Ave. bridge when the truck struck it, so crews will be at work to straighten them, according to MnDOT. 

In addition, a temporary pedestrian bridge will be installed at 22nd Ave. this weekend, but to get the work done MnDOT will have to close both directions of I-94 from 10 p.m. Saturday until 4 p.m. Sunday, with additional closures Nov. 8-11. 

The regular pedestrian bridge has been closed since it was hit by the truck in August. MnDOT has recommended people to use the 25th or 20th Ave. bridges until the temporary crossing is installed.
