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.

Hwy. 100 and other construction projects rocked the area last summer, and with continued plans for construction on I-494 and Hwy. 169 this year, motorists can plan for another year of difficulties.

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.
