The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) will begin work on I-494 between Blaine Avenue and Hardman Avenue. The bridge deck over Concord Street/Highway 156 will be widened and resurfaced.
The westbound lanes on the I-494 bridge will be reduced from five to three lanes in the work zone and the Maxwell Avenue ramp to westbound I-494 will be closed. The detour for this ramp closure will be Bailey Road to eastbound I-494 to Lake Road and then back to westbound I-494. Work is expected be completed by fall 2019.
Motorists should expect delays and allow additional travel time.
