With no threat of traffic from Twins fans driving home from games in October, the Lowry Hill Tunnel in downtown Minneapolis will be closed for cleaning two nights next week.

The closures will occur Monday and Tuesday, starting at 10 p.m. both nights and reopening at 5 a.m. in time for the morning rush hour.

The westbound side of the tunnel will closed Monday night, and the eastbound side has its turn Tuesday night.

Motorists at those times will be detoured to the prohibited-vehicle route.
