A big closure will hit the Twin Cities' west metro this weekend, with Hwy. 100 shutting down from Interstate 394 to Hwy. 62, MnDOT said.
MnDOT officials told area residents at a February open house to expect their drive time to be up to six times longer than it usually is, the Star Tribune reported.
The Hwy. 7 bridge will be torn down this weekend, which will cause the closure starting at 10 p.m. Friday night (ramps will being closing at 9 p.m.) and lasting through 5 a.m. Monday morning.
Another weekend closure is planned for April 22-25 as well.
When it’s done, the highway will have three lanes of traffic going in each direction from I-394 to I-494 as well as upgraded entrance and exit ramps, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
