Interstate 494 travelers driving between I-694/94 and I-394 will start encountering lane closures April 18 as the I-494 rehabilitation project continues to move forward in 2016. 

The lane closures are part of preparation for construction crews to shift traffic from the northbound side of I-494 to the southbound lanes, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Beginning 8 p.m. Monday, April 18 through November, travelers can anticipate the following, according to MnDOT

  • Westbound I-694 to southbound I-494 left lane closure
  • Southbound I-494 (between I-694/94 and I-394) will be reduced to two lanes.

The I-494 construction project is in its final year. Additional closures and construction impacts are expected to be announced within the next few weeks.
