Parts of two major freeways are closed this weekend, complicating travel for motorists in the Twin Cities. Interstate 94 in St. Paul is closed in both directions between Highway 280 and Interstate 35E so that Xcel Energy crews can relocate power lines in the area. The posted detour routes motorists onto Highway 36.
Feeling a little backed up on the highway? You’re not alone. A freeway traffic study shows congestion increased between 2009 and 2010 by more than 3 percent.
