Motorists who drive on Interstate 35W south in Minneapolis will encounter a major detour this weekend.

I-35W will close Friday night from Highway 55 (Hiawatha Avenue) near downtown Minneapolis to 46th street in south Minneapolis. It will remain blocked off until 5 a.m. Monday.

Traffic will be detoured to:

  • Westbound I-94
  • Westbound I-394
  • Southbound Hwy. 100
  • Westbound Hwy. 62

Drivers traveling south on I-35W and those attempting to get on I-35W from westbound I-94 or the 4th Avenue and 12th Street ramps in downtown Minneapolis will follow the same detour.

Drivers coming from eastbound I-94 will be directed to eastbound Highway 55 and westbound Highway 62.

The closure is so crews can survey the stretch of road for a construction project from 46th Street to Interstate 94 in 2017.

A closure on northbound I-35W, from 66th Street in Richfield to I-94 in Minneapolis, is coming in early September.
