I-694 closure planned from Victoria Street to Rice Street April 12-15
Interstate 694 is scheduled to be closed this weekend from Victoria Street to Rice Street for work on the I-694/Rice Street interchange reconstruction project. The closure will begin Friday, April 12 at 10 p.m. and includes both east and westbound I-694.
I-694 will reopen by 5 a.m. on Monday, April 15.
During the closure, construction crews will remove the west side of the Rice Street bridge over I-694. Reconstruction of the I-694/Rice Street interchange began in March and will take about two years to complete. The project will improve traffic flow in the interchange and create better pedestrian and bike facilities along Rice Street.
Rice Street will remain open to traffic. Flaggers may stop traffic for short periods.
Eastbound I-694 motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour of southbound Interstate 35W to eastbound Highway 36 to northbound Interstate 35E, then back to east or westbound I-694.
Westbound I-694 motorists will be directed to follow the posted detour of southbound I-35E to westbound Highway 36 to northbound I-35W, then back to west or eastbound I-694.
Motorists should plan ahead for additional travel time and determine an alternate route when possible.
