MnDOT I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center and other projects

Good afternoon,

Here is an update on the I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center project. We also have some short updates on other projects for those interested.

The I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center web page is here: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/i94brooklyncntr/

Lowry Tunnel

*Two lanes of traffic are traveling through each side of the tunnel until Aug. 3. The two inside lanes on each side are closed for median work. The ramps from I-35W north to I-94 west, Highway 55 to I-94 east and Fourth Ave. to I-94 west remain closed.

The I-94 west ramps to 394 west and to Highway 55 are open.

The third and final stage starts late Aug 3 into early Aug. 4 will put four lanes of traffic in the westbound tunnel. This will be two, 10-foot lanes with a concrete barrier in the middle. No trucks weighing more than 9,000 pounds allowed and a 40 mph speed limit remains in place. The ramps from I-35W to I-94 west, Highway 55 to I-94 east and Fourth Ave. to I-94 west remain closed. The ramp from I-94 east to 35W south will be closed.

I-394 east to I-94 east will remain open until Aug. 14. Then it will close for 14 days. The detour is south bound Highway 100 to Highway 62 east to I-35W north.

So I-394 east traffic will travel through the tunnel from Aug. 4 to Aug. 14. That means five lanes total are open inside the tunnel for the first 10 days or so of the third stage. The hope is to have the tunnel and nearby bridge work done before Labor Day.

The dates are tentative and could change because of weather. We will keep you up to date as we draw closer.

We will post maps on our website when they are available.

Broadway/Washington ramp

The ramp from I-94 west to Broadway/Washington will close Aug. 1 for 10 days. The detour is Dowling Avenue to Second Street.

Here are some updates on other projects for those interested:

Highway 169 http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy169hopkins/index.html

Highway 169 south will close from Highway 55 to Highway 7 from 7 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday for paving.

A second weekend closure is planned for Aug. 4-7. The northbound lanes will close from 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 4 to noon Sat, Aug. 5 and the southbound lanes will close from noon Saturday to 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 7. Check the website for ramp closure updates.

694 closure

I-694 from Highway 252 to I-35W will close from 10 p.m. Aug. 1 to 5 a.m. Aug. 2 to install beams on a pedestrian bridge. The detour is Highway 252 to Highway 610 to Highway 10 to I-35W.

I-35W/Lake http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/i35wminneapolis/

The project starts Aug. 14. An open house is planned from 5-7 p.m. Aug. 17 at the Hope Community Center, 611 Franklin Ave. A postcard is attached.

Warrant List 7-21-17docx.pdf

A Message from Council Member Warsame: Accountability, Justice and Police Reform

Greetings,

Just one week ago our city of Minneapolis was torn apart by the death of a woman by one of our Minneapolis police officers. Justine Damond’s death is a tragedy and we must do everything in our power to find the truth of what happened. It is our moral responsibility to demand justice for Justine and her family and to advocate for police reform.

Since Justine Damond’s death there has been an intense focus on Officer Noor, blaming his action on his race, ethnicity and religion. Former Congresswoman Michelle Bachman insinuated that Noor might have shot Damond for “cultural” reasons. I’ve heard others describe this tragedy as a terrorist act carried out by a Muslim against a Christian.

These statements are dangerous and purely divisive, and they undermine our American Values. They seek to divide us, and I can tell you firsthand that they hurt our East African neighbors and friends.

I do not know all the facts of this case. What I know is that our city has been once more changed forever. I have not spoken to Officer Noor nor have I spoken to anyone who has spoken with Officer Noor. But we must find the truth of what happened. As the laws of our country dictate, when a crime has been committed, the person responsible must be held accountable at the bar of justice.

At the same time, the East African community has been told the justice system must be blind and that people will be judged by their actions and no other factor. Race, religion, sex are not relevant to this inquiry.

There are many things that need to be done in our society to deal with policing, both in this city and our country. Change must happen. I support rebuilding an independent civilian oversight board, including changing state law and city policy so the board has subpoena power for investigations and can discipline police misconduct. I support a city budget that prioritizes community violence prevention and reform above adding sworn police personnel. I support finding innovative solutions to building positive lasting relationships between people of color and the Police Department.

My hope is that the new police chief Medaria Arrandondo will be an agent of change. In his confirmation process and hearing, I will ask forceful and direct questions about what he will do to bring about that change. My support for him will only come if he is forthright and prepared to deal with the serious policing challenges our city faces.

The time of accepting the status quo is over. The time is also at hand to respect our East African and immigrant communities and our entire Minneapolis community. Now is not a time for racial hatred. Now is the time for accountability, justice, and change. I promise to you today that I will be force for accountability and change in this city and I will do everything in my power to demand justice and better policing moving forward.

Thank you,

This is an update of the I-94 Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center project. You will also find some short updates from some other projects at the end of the email.

The web page should be up to date: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/i94brooklyncntr/

The first stage of the work in and near the Lowry Tunnel is scheduled to be complete early next week. The plan is late July 24 to shift two lanes of westbound traffic into the westbound lane. Two eastbound lanes will remain in the east side. If it rains, the work will be pushed to late July 25.

This will allow the I-94 west to I-394 west and Highway 55 ramps to open.

This stage will be in place for about seven to 10 days.

The I-94 east will close at the Portland Tunnel from 11 p.m. July 20 to 5 a.m. July 21. The detour is I-35W S to 46th Street to 35W north to I-94 east.
I-394 east ramp to I-94 east will also close during this time.

Just a reminder: the speed limit in the work zone is 50 mph. In the tunnel it is 40 mph. Trucks weighing more than 9,000 pounds are prohibited for using the Lowry Tunnel. We are still seeing some go through. The State Patrol is nearby enforcing.

U.S. Highway 169 http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/hwy169hopkins/index.html

Southbound Highway 169 is closed from Highway 55 to Highway 7 from 7 a.m. Friday, July 21 to 5 a.m. Monday, July 24.
