Twin Cities freeways, major highways now closing at 5 p.m. Sunday

The decision was announced just 20 minutes prior to closures going into effect.

The original plan to shut down major freeways and highways in and out of Minneapolis and St. Paul at 8 p.m. Sunday has been moved up to 5 p.m., a last-minute decision announced by the Minnesota Department of Transportation at 4:38 p.m. 

In fact, the original Sunday plan was to keep traffic flowing in and out of St. Paul, but the state's capitol city is now included in the closures beginning at 5 p.m.
