Construction update: I-494 and I-35E Closures

Construction work will continue on I-494 between Mendota Heights and South St. Paul and may impact your drive later this summer. 

The work includes bridge deck resurfacing and joint replacement on the I-494 bridge decks over I-35E, repairing pavement between 3rd Avenue and the east side of the Minnesota River bridge, improving drainage, constructing ponds, as well as adding a turn a lane and replacing signals at I-494 and Pilot Knob Road.

Expect single-lane or directional closures of I-494 over approximately 12 weekends as crews complete the pavement resurfacing and drainage work.  

The bridge work will occur in multiple stages over two years and will include lane closures. For more information about the projects on I-494 in Dakota County or to sign up for email updates visit the project website at mndot.gov/metro/projects/i494invergroveheights.
