County Road 47 at I-494 in Plymouth closing May 31 – early July

Motorists on Hennepin County Road 47 in Plymouth will not be able to cross under Interstate 494 beginning Tuesday, May 31.
County Road 47 between Yucca Lane and Teakwood Lane will remain closed through early July while crews begin reconstructing the northbound I-494 bridge over County Road 47.

Motorists will be detoured around the closure via Northwest Boulevard, Bass Lake Road and County Road 101/Brockton Lane.
Northbound I-94 ramps at Rockford Road

The northbound I-494 ramps to and from Rockford Road also will close Tuesday, May 31. Both ramps will remain closed through early July.  
Motorists intending to access northbound I-494 from Rockford Road will be detoured to southbound I-494, eastbound Highway 55 and northbound I-494. Those intending to exit northbound I-494 at Rockford Road will be detoured to eastbound Highway 55, northbound Northwest Boulevard and Rockford Road.

The closures are needed while crews make maintenance repairs to both ramps.
