I-94 project from Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center starts Monday

ROSEVILLE, Minn.- Construction work on Interstate 94 from Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis to Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center starts March 20.

On Monday, lane restrictions are planned on eastbound I-94 from west of Shingle Creek Parkway to Highway 252, weather permitting. The interstate will be reduced to two lanes. Other ramp and lane closures are expected to start by the end of the month.

Work will also start under bridges Monday.

The $46.3 million maintenance and preservation project includes work on 50 bridges, including the Lowry Tunnel, resurfacing of the interstate and ramps and other safety improvements.

Traffic capacity will be reduced for much of the spring, summer and fall. Motorists should plan ahead, prepare for delays and pay attention in work zones.
