The Third Street flyover ramp from northbound Interstate 35W in Minneapolis will be closed from Aug. 25 to Sept. 15. 

The road will be closed during the reconstruction of Fourth Street South, which includes the addition of turn lanes for a new northbound I-35W entrance ramp.

Motorists will be detoured to westbound Washington Avenue and southbound Chicago Avenue.

The reconstruction is part of the larger I-35W project that aims to improve traffic flow, reduce travel times and costs for motorists.
