There will be no access to Fifth Street from westbound Interstate 94 in Minneapolis beginning Wednesday, May 18 at 1 a.m., weather permitting. According to a release from MnDOT the ramp will remain closed through June 1 to reconstruct a new westbound I-94 bridge/ramp to Seventh Street in downtown Minneapolis.
Traffic normally using this access will be detoured to northbound Cedar Avenue, westbound Washington Avenue and Fourth Avenue.
The work is part of a larger project that includes realigning the existing westbound I-94 exit to Fifth Street by constructing a new section of ramp that will redirect traffic exiting westbound I-94 to Seventh Street instead of Fifth Street. This project is a collaborative effort of the city of Minneapolis and the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
