The Minnesota Department of Transportation has announced that the exit ramp from eastbound I-94 to Huron Boulevard will be closed from 6:30 a.m. on Wednesday, December 7 until 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 9. Students, faculty, staff and visitors who typically arrive at the University via Huron Boulevard from eastbound I-94 are encouraged to consider alternate routes or plan additional travel time.

During the ramp closure, the official detour will direct motorists to:

  • continue eastbound on I-94
    exit on Cretin Avenue/Vandalia Street
    access westbound I-94
    exit on Huron Boulevard

In addition to the official detour route, drivers may want to consider other detour possibilities including:

    exit on University Avenue
  • east on I-94
    north on Highway 280
    exit on University Avenue
  • through downtown Minneapolis
