Thousands of drivers will hit the road this week for the Fourth of July holiday. Whether you're heading out of the metro or staying in town, here's a couple of potential hangups to watch out for.
In the metro, KSTP points out traffic along I-694 will be slow-moving between I-35W and Highway 100 due to lane reductions.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation says the Highway 10 diagonal between I-694 and I-35W will remain closed.
If you're heading to Stillwater, KSTP suggests avoiding Highway 36 altogether due to the closure between Highway 61 and White Bear Avenue.
KARE 11 reports a vital link to the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport closed Monday for a four-month project. The closure of the ramp from westbound I-494 to 34th Avenue causes a major disruption for travelers going to Terminal 2, or the former Humphrey Terminal. A map of the detour is available.
Fortunately, current lane and ramp closures along I-94 between St. Michael and Monticello and also between Clearwater and St. Cloud will open up for most of the travel week.
Out-state Minnesota will also see some detours along major arteries. For a complete list of road work affecting this week's travel, click here. The Patch also has a good breakdown of potential interruptions.
