Overnight rain has delayed the Lowry Hill Tunnel spring cleaning scheduled for Monday and Tuesday nights until Tuesday and Wednesday nights.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will shut down both lanes of I-94 in the tunnel between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. on both Tuesday and Wednesday.

Ramps from Olson Memorial Highway and eastbound I-394 to eastbound I-94 also will be closed.

Besides giving the tunnel a good scrubbing, crews will also repair pavement, fix lights and unclog storm drains.
