Closures planned on I-94, Hwy. 62 this weekend

Inconvenience is coming to Twin Cities highways.

If you're planning to travel this weekend, there are some pretty significant road closures to be aware of.

MnDOT says it will be closing down parts of I-94 in the west metro and Hwy. 62 in the south metro for planned construction work.

I-94 will be closed eastbound at the I-94/494/694 interchange in Woodbury, while the ramps to southbound I-694, eastbound I-94 and from eastbound I-94 to northbound I-694 will also be closed.

The closure will start at 8 p.m on Friday, with eastbound I-94 re-opening at 5 a.m. Monday.

The interchange is set for some major work as bridges are replaced and widened, new auxiliary lanes and buffer lanes are built, and a ramp is reconstructed.

Meanwhile in Edina, Hwy. 62 will be closing at the France Avenue exit between 10 p.m. Friday and 5 a.m. Monday.

This marks the start of significant work as the France Avenue bridge – used for access to Fairview Southdale hospital and the Southdale Center mall – is replaced.

The France Avenue bridge over Hwy. 62 will actually close until mid-June starting this Friday at 10 p.m., with drivers detoured via Xerxes Avenue or Valley View Road.

The ramp from France Avenue to westbound Hwy. 62 will close at 6 a.m. Wednesday.
