Starting in March of 2017 and going though the spring of 2018 MNDot will be reconstructing I-94 and it's bridges. This project will result in lane and ramp closures throughout the 2017 farmers market season.

We have a number of closures starting late June which will impact your drive to the farmers market. Please review those, and their detours, below the map.

We will update this page with the latest information we have about this project and how it will impact access and parking at the Farmers Market Annex.

Current Closures

Eastbound 94 Closed
June 23-25

Eastbound 94 will be closed from 694 to 35W

Impact: A pain if you take eastbound 94, no change if you take any other route.

Detour: If you normally take eastbound 94, instead take either southbound 100 to 394 or take soutbound 35W to westbound 94. Then follow the nomral directions to get here.

Ramp from Hwy 55 to Eastbound 94 Closed
June 24-Mid September

The entrance ramp from Hwy 55 to eastbound 94 will be closed for the better part of the summer.

Impact: You will have to take detours to get onto the freeway at other entrances.

Detour: Take Glenwood Ave into downtown to N 6th St. Take a right on N 6th St (which becomes S 6th St). Take a right on 4th Ave S to get to southbound 35W. Stay on S 6th St to get to eastbound 94. Take a left on 5th Ave S to Washington Ave, then take a right onto Washington Ave to get to northbound 35W.

Westbound 94 Exit to Hwy 55 Closed
June 24 - Mid August

The exit ramp from westbound 94 to Hwy 55 will be closed for the better part of a month.

Impact: You get a tour of downtown on your way to the market!

Detour: From westbound 94 or 35W, take the S 11th St exit into downtown. Stay on S 11th St till you cross over 394 (it then becomes N 12th St). Take a left on Glenwood Ave to Lyndale Ave and the market.

Traffic Lanes on 94

94 is reduced to 2 lanes, both east and west bound, between the tunnel and 694.

Impact: Minimal on weekends. But, you'll need to get up a bit earlier if you need to drive rush hour.

Parking across Lyndale under 94

A small portion of the lot will be closed for storage of construction machinery and materials.

Impact: Minimal. The majority of the lot will remain open as normal. All metered street parking is unaffected. We have also added free parking in the lot on the corner of Glenwood and Lyndale behind the Annex warehouse.
