I-494 Bridge Deck Project Scheduled to Begin in August

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.

More information, including contact information for MnDOT, can be found on MnDOT's website project page.
