MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Interstate 94 in Minneapolis will remain open this weekend after plans to close the road fell through (again) due to the impending stormy weather.
MnDOT planned to close eastbound I-94 between I-35W and Highway 280 as part of the I-94 Improvement Project. The department said construction will be rescheduled for a later date this spring.
The I-94 Improvement Project looks to improve safety and congestion in Minneapolis and St. Paul by the means of Smart Lane technology, MnDOT said. The project plan includes a resurfacing, drainage improvements, bridge maintenance, shoulder maintenance and lane realignment.
