A stretch of southbound Hennepin Avenue south of Downtown will be closed this weekend for resurfacing.

Weather permitting, construction crews will close the street's southbound lanes from Douglas to Franklin avenues at 6 a.m. Friday. The work is expected to be completed by 5 a.m. Monday.

The Interstate 94 exit to southbound Hennepin also will be closed.

The city is suggesting drivers find alternate routes during the construction. A posted detour will direct people to Lyndale Avenue South and then to Franklin Avenue.
