Work on the I-494 project continues, with another closure scheduled for the weekend.

A portion of southbound I-494 will be closing starting 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 23 through 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 26, 2015, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

“Southbound I-494 will be closing between I-694/94 in Maple Grove and I-394 in Minnetonka while crews work in the median area,” MnDOT stated in a release. All southbound I-494 ramps between I-694/94 and I-394 will be closed as well.

Travelers will be detoured around the closure by:

  • Eastbound I-694/94
  • Southbound Highway 16
  • Westbound I-394. The westbound I-394 ramp to southbound I-494 will remain open during the detour.   

The closure is part of a two-year I-494 construction project that includes adding a third lane on I-494 between Highway 55 and I-94/694, repairing pavement, and building a noise wall along the interstate.
