MnDOT: 'Significant traffic delays' expected on I-394 east into Minneapolis


Traffic delays could be significant along eastbound Interstate 394 heading into Minneapolis on Monday morning.

According to the Star Tribune, drivers heading east on I-394 between Hwy. 100 and Interstate 94 should expect "significant traffic delays."

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says motorists will be diverted to the two high-occupancy lanes. The changes are part of MnDOT's $11 million improvement project that began in June.

As a result of the construction, ramps from eastbound I-394 to Penn Avenue, Penn Avenue to eastbound I-394 and northbound Hwy. 100 to eastbound I-394 will be closed.

MnDOT recommends drivers heading north on Hwy. 100 to eastbound Hwy. 55, while drivers traveling south on Hwy. 100 to eastbound I-394 take the high-occupancy ramps.

MnDOT also continues to work on the Lyndale Avenue bridge over the Dunwoody/Hennepin exit. Commuters won't be able to access westbound I-394 or northbound I-94 via Lyndale, instead they are being directed to use Dunwoody Boulevard/Hennepin Ave, 12th Street and Linden Ave.
