Several times a day, cab driver Bashir Abdi takes a fare over Interstate 694 between New Brighton and Brooklyn Center. But his days are about to get much longer, and his patience much shorter.
Traffic restrictions are slated to begin Monday night on westbound Interstate-694 between East River Road and Highway 100 in Brooklyn Center, the Department of Transportation says. The restrictions were supposed to set in Sunday night, but equipment problems prompted a delay.
Get ready for some major traffic trouble Monday. That’s when a five-month road project begins on Interstate 694 — one of the busiest roadways in the north metro.
A car rollover in Fridley has injured seven passengers, including a 4-year-old boy, early Saturday evening.
It’s among the oldest stretches of interstate in the Twin Cities metropolitan area, and at 124,000 vehicles traveling the beltway each day, Interstate 694 is also among the area’s most heavily traveled.
Major traffic switches are planned throughout the weekend as construction activity winds down for the season on the Interstate 694 North Central Projects in Arden Hills.
