35W@94 Downtown to Crosstown Construction Update

Upcoming closures

  • I-94 overnight closures Aug. 23 and 25
  • Project webcam views available
  • Upcoming I-94 and I-35W overnight closures tentatively scheduled for late Aug. and early Sept.

Project status

We’re continuing to make progress on some of the new bridges we’re constructing. As a result, we need some overnight closures on I-94 and I-35W later this month. If you’re interested in watching progress of the I-35W and I-94 interchange, we have good news for you, views from our project webcam are now available.

Details on each update are provided below.


I-94 overnight closures scheduled Aug. 23 and 25

As work progresses on the new bridge that will carry traffic to/from the downtown exits over I-94, we need to set bridge beams in preparation of deck construction. To do this, some nighttime highway closures are needed and scheduled for the following dates:

  • On Thu, Aug. 23, an overnight closure of eastbound I-94 between I-394 and I-35W from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. The detour route is WB I-394 to SB Hwy 100 to EB Hwy 62 to NB I-35W
  • On Sat, Aug. 25, an overnight closure of westbound I-94 between I-35W and I-394 from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. The detour route is SB I-35W to WB Hwy 62 to NB Hwy 100 to EB I-394. 

Project webcam views available

We’ve installed a project webcam at the north end of the construction area. From the webcam you can see progress being made on:

  • The new I-35W tunnel bridge which will be the new alignment for traffic traveling from westbound I-94 to southbound I-35W.
  • The new bridge over I-94 that will carry traffic to/from the downtown exits.
  • The I-35W/I-94 interchange

Upcoming I-94 and I-35W overnight closures scheduled for late Aug. and early Sept.

There will be additional overnight closures on I-94 and I-35W in late Aug. and early Sept. Additional details will be provided in future email updates as dates are finalized.
