   Lowry Hill Tunnel on I-94 West to Close Overnight 3 Days this Week

T. PAUL, Minn. – Motorists will see overnight closures at the Lowry Hill Tunnel on westbound Interstate 94 in Minneapolis for three days this week.

The tunnel will close daily, weather permitting, from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 26; Wednesday, Sept. 27; Thursday, Sept. 28.

It will not close Friday, Sept. 29 and Sunday Oct. 1 as originally planned because of a nearby closure scheduled on Interstate 35W. The westbound tunnel will remain open during the weekend.

Crews were not scheduled to work Saturday, Sept. 30.

The detour for the tunnel closure is the prohibited vehicle route that takes motorists off I-94 west at the Hennepin/Lyndale exit.

The eastbound tunnel will remain open.

Crews will work on installing curb, permanent striping, lighting and final work inside the tunnel on I-94 west while the tunnel is closed.

The work is part of the I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center project that started March 20. The $46 million project included resurfacing nine miles of freeway, fixing 50 bridges, ramp repairs and repairs to the Lowry Hill and Portland Avenue tunnels. Much of the work is complete. Crews will continue making improvements on I-94 through October and will return in spring of 2018 for some ramp and bridge work. The project is expected to be complete by July of 2018.

   I-35W Weekend Closure in Minneapolis Scheduled Sept 29-Oct 2

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Interstate 35W will close in both directions between I-94 and Highway 62 in Minneapolis, beginning at 10 p.m., Friday, Sept. 29, as crews prepare for the demolition of the Franklin Avenue bridge.

Crews will begin closing the on and off ramps for I-35W approximately one hour prior to closing the interstate.

Motorists will be detoured around the closure using I-394, Highway 100 and Highway 62.  I-35W will reopen to traffic by 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 2.

In addition, the Portland Avenue bridge spanning I-94 will close to motorists beginning at 5 a.m., Saturday, Sept. 30. However, the bridge will remain open to pedestrians, bicyclists, ambulances and police.  Motorists should follow the posted detour using 15th Street to Chicago Avenue to Franklin Avenue.

The Portland Avenue bridge is expected to reopen in late-November, weather permitting.

A second weekend closure of I-35W will take place from 10 p.m. Friday, Oct. 6 through 5 a.m. Monday, Oct. 9 to complete the Franklin Avenue bridge demolition.

These closures are part of the larger four-year 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown reconstruction project on I-35W between 43rd Street and downtown Minneapolis. The work includes reconstructing pavement, bridges and ramps on I-35W, adding new access ramps to the Lake Street Business District and building a new transit station on the interstate. Once complete, motorists and residents will have better accessibility, safety and mobility in the area.  Work is expected to be completed in fall 2021.

   Eastbound I-694 traffic moved this weekend to new pavement between Arden Hills and Vadnais Heights

ROSEVILLE, Minn. –Monday, September 25, morning commuters on eastbound Interstate 694 will find themselves traveling on two new lanes of the interstate between Lexington Avenue in Arden Hills and Interstate 35E in Little Canada. Traffic was switched onto the two new left lanes of pavement through the area late Friday night, Sept. 22. The concrete median barrier dividing the eastbound lanes has also been removed. The barrier had divided the lanes into an inside through lane with no exits and an outside lane that allowed traffic to exit the eastbound interstate.

Although traffic has been switched to the newly built inside lanes of eastbound I-694, the roadway will remain two lanes until early November. The ramp from Rice Street to westbound I-694 along with the ramps between Victoria Street and the eastbound interstate remain closed. The ramp from eastbound Highway 10 to eastbound I-694 also remains closed until later this month. 

The second and final year of construction to add a third general purpose lane in each direction of I-694 began in April and focused on the eastbound lanes of the interstate. Last year’s work rebuilt and added a third lane in the westbound direction of the interstate.

In addition to rebuilding the interstate, the project also included reconstructing the interstate ramps at Lexington Avenue, Victoria Street and Rice Street along with improving storm water drainage throughout the project area.

When complete in November of 2017, the project will improve driver safety and accessibility, increase capacity to lessen congestion and provide smoother road surfaces. In addition, the new roadway will enhance the movement of freight and support economic development.

For more information about the Enhance 694 project and informative videos about the project, please visit www.enhance694.com. You can also sign up for email alerts throughout the work.

   I-94 Lane Closures for Bridge Restoration Project in Portage

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is alerting drivers to lane closures on I-94, between mile marker 15.8 (Exit 16) and mile marker 16.3 (See map) Monday, April 17 through the middle of November. Crews will remove and replace the I-94 bridge deck over the Indiana Toll Road and reinforce the concrete columns under State Road 51.

During the project, through traffic will always be maintained on I-94 but will be reduced to two lanes in each directions at times. INDOT urges drivers to remember that this is an active work zone and to slow down prior to entering the construction area. Motorists should expect periodic delays and allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers should pay close attention to the signs in the work zone, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Drivers can monitor road closures and traffic alerts at any time via the INDOT Northwest District social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.

   I-65 Bridge Project to Close Lanes South of Roselawn in Jasper County

Crews to close one northbound and one southbound lane of the bridge over Moffitt Ditch

The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is alerting drivers to lane closures on I-65, between IN-10 and IN-14, from mile marker 225 to 227, south of Roselawn, Monday, March 20 through the end of September. Crews will close one north and one southbound lane at a time, over the Moffitt Ditch bridge to make repairs and to restore the bridge surface.

During the project, I-65 will be open to all through traffic, but restricted to one north and one southbound lane in the work zone. Motorists should expect periodic delays and allow extra time for trips through this area. Drivers are urged to pay close attention to the signs in the work zones, obey the posted speed limits and be on the alert for workers and equipment.

Taking care of what we have

INDOT has been expanding its investments in maintenance and preservation projects to keep pavement and bridges in good condition for as long as possible, targeting bridges and roadway sections with the right treatments at the right times.

Drivers in Northwest Indiana can monitor road closures, road conditions, and traffic alerts at any time via the District’s social media channels: www.Facebook.com/INDOTNorthwest or Twitter @INDOTNorthwest. Or visit http://www.trafficwise.in.gov for INDOT’s TrafficWise Traveler Information Service.

   Southbound I-75 Detroit To Downriver

COUNTY:
Wayne
COMMUNITIES AFFECTED:
Detroit, Melvindale, River Rouge, Lincoln Park, Allen Park, Taylor, Southgate, and Brownstown Township

START DATE:
Weekend of Feb. 4, 2017

ESTIMATED END DATE:
Late 2018

PROJECT DETAILS:
Southbound I-75 will be closed from Detroit to Downriver in less than three weeks. This closure is part of the Michigan Department of Transportation's (MDOT) approximately $200 million investment in major repairs over a two-year period.

The detour begins at I-96 in Detroit to Northline Road in 2017; during 2018, the detour will be from I-96 to Sibley Road. Only southbound I-75 will be closed during the two-year period while northbound I-75 will remain open at all times.

The project includes:

  • Removing and replacing all concrete on the I-75 Rouge River bridge, the largest concrete surface in Michigan (approximately 20 football fields).
  • Replacing concrete on the I-75 bridge at Fort Street, south of Springwells Road.
  • Removing the Goddard Street bridge over I-75 and replacing it with two smaller bridges.
  • Repairing 13 other bridges along I-75 through the Downriver communities.
  • Adding intelligent transportation system (ITS) equipment. ITS includes a combination of electronic, telecommunication and information technology MDOT uses to improve safety and travel times on the transportation system.

The decision to close one direction of I-75 is based on multiple factors, including:

  • Speed: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time without traffic present will result in the project being completed in the shortest amount of time.
  • Cost: The shorter project duration resulting from rebuilding one side of bridge at a time will result in the lowest overall project cost.
  • Safety: If the bridge was constructed in sections with both directions of traffic sharing one side, there wouldn't be adequate room for emergency crews to respond to incidents on the bridge.
  • Mobility: Maintaining limited two-way traffic on one side of freeway would cause back-ups in both directions, as opposed to one direction. 
  • Quality: Rebuilding one side of the bridge at a time will allow construction to proceed without interruption since there will be no need to maintain traffic. The decreased vibrations from nearby traffic will result in the best quality workmanship.
  • Duration: By closing southbound I-75, construction activity will move faster since not as much time and effort will be needed to shift traffic.

Motorists will see signs announcing the closure along I-75 to allow residents, businesses, and drivers plenty of time to prepare alternate routes. Detours and details can be found at the project website, www.75rougeriver.com.

The detour route is southbound I-75 to westbound I-96, then southbound I-275 to southbound I-75 in Monroe. Other alternate routes include I-94, M-85 (Fort Street), Jefferson Avenue, and Dix Highway.
