Motorist be aware of eastbound I-694 closure this weekend
Eastbound Interstate 694 will be closed this weekend as crews switch eastbound traffic onto the newly completed lanes of the westbound interstate in Arden Hills. The roadway will be closed and detoured from 10 p.m. Friday, July 27 until 5 a.m. Monday, July 30 between I-35W and Lexington Avenue. The switch between Old Highway 10 and Lexington Avenue is needed to allow crews to begin construction of the new eastbound lanes in the area.
During the closure, traffic will detour south on I-35W, east on Highway 36 and back north on I-35E. Motorists should allow for extra travel time and follow the signed detours to reach their destinations. Westbound I-694 will not be affected and motorists will be able to reach the eastbound interstate from Lexington Avenue, Victoria Street and Rice Street.
