Sections of Crosstown to close this weekend

Portions of Crosstown are slated to close from 10 p.m. Oct. 3 to 5 a.m. Oct. 6 to allow crews to work on water mains.

The closures will occur along Highway 62 from Interstate 35W to Penn Avenue.

A Minnesota Department of Transportation update said the closures will not affect I-35W, which will remain open.

MnDOT recommends these detours:

• Eastbound Highway 62: take Highway 100 south to I-494 east, then to I-35W north.

• Westbound Highway 62: take I-35W south to I-494 west, then to Highway 100 north.

The ramp from northbound I-35W to West 58th Street/Lyndale Avenue will stay open during the closure, as will the Penn Avenue exit ramp from eastbound Highway 62 and the Penn Avenue entrance ramp to westbound Highway 62, the update said.
