It’s another weekend in the Twin Cities, which means more closings of major interstate highways traversing these major American cities.
Here’s the map. Click for a larger view.
And here’s the translation:
I-94 – This evening (10 p.m.) through early Monday morning, it’s closed between Cedar Avenue and I35W. The detour is Highway 280 to to I-35W to I-694. You can do the same thing if you’re eastbound on 94 from west of the city. You can’t use I-494 as a detour, however. See below.
I-94 WB – The entrance ramp from Lexington Avenue is closed until 5 Monday morning.
I-35W – Is closed between I-94 and 7th Street. If you’re heading northbound, you’ll have to get on I-94 westbound, east on I-694 and then pick up I-35W. If you’re heading southbound, you can do the same thing, or go down Highway 280 to I-94 east and then down I-35E south, which seems a little out of the way unless you’re sick of the western detour.
I-494 Western suburbs from I-94. The exit ramp from eastbound I-94 to I-494 closes at 8pm Friday and maybe reopens on Sunday in time for the come-home-from-the-cabin traffic. You could stay on 94 to Highway 169 to I-394. Better: Stay at the cabin another day. By the way, look out for the Maple Grove and Plymouth cops. They were having a field day catching speeders today.
I-494 Eastern suburbs – The exit ramps from northbound 494 to Valley Creek Road in Woodbury and I-94 eastbound are closed.
The northbound entrance ramp from Tamarack Road in Woodbury is closed.
I-694 Eastern suburbs – The entrance ramp from I-94 westbound to I-694 in Oakdale is closed.
The northbound exit onto 10th Street in Oakdale/Maplewood is closed.
The northbound exit onto Highway 5 in Oakdale is closed.
Highway 10 – Eastbound closed between Highway 65 and Interstate 35W starting at 6 p.m. Friday. Detour is Ramsey 10.
