MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – If you’re driving in the northwest Twin Cities metro this weekend, be aware of a significant highway closure that could cause delays.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation says eastbound Interstate 94 will be closed at Highway 610 in Maple Grove starting at 8 p.m. Friday. I-94 will be closed throughout the weekend so construction crews can do pavement repair.

Traffic will be detoured east on Highway 610 and south on Highway 169 to get back to I-94. MnDOT officials said Maple Grove Parkway will be open to I-94 traffic in both directions throughout the weekend so drivers can travel from there to eastbound and westbound I-94.

There will be no impact on the westbound side of I-94. It will be reopened by 5 a.m. Monday.
