Update: I-494 closure, weekend of July 20-23

July 20-23

Motorists traveling along I-494 between Highway 100 in Bloomington/Edina and Highway 212 in Eden Prairie will encounter a detour the weekend on July 20-23, weather permitting, while crews set beams for the East Bush Lake Road Westbound Ramp to I-494.

I-494 will be closed in BOTH directions, between Highway 100 in Bloomington/Edina and Highway 212 in Eden Prairie, starting Friday, July 20 at 10 p.m.  Please note this is a change from the earlier information.  The eastbound closure will be removed sometime the morning of Sunday, July 22, while the westbound closure will remain through 5 a.m. Monday, July 23, weather permitting. Crews will begin closing lanes and off ramps along eastbound I-494 around 9 p.m., approximately one hour before closing the interstate.

Motorists should plan ahead, determine an alternate route and provide additional time to reach their destinations.  For real-time travel information anywhere in Minnesota, visit or dial 5-1-1.
