During the closure, eastbound traffic will be directed north on Hwy. 252 then east on Hwys. 610 and 10 and south on I-35W. Westbound traffic will be sent north on I-35W, then west on Hwys. 10 and 610, then south on Hwy. 252.

In the northeast metro, the southbound lanes of I-35E will be closed at the Forest Lake split starting at 10:30 p.m. for overhead sign repair. Drivers will be detoured south on I-35W, then east on I-694,the Minnesota Department of Transportation said.

The freeway is expected to reopen in time for Wednesday's morning rush hour.
