June 21, 2019 06:27 PM

Thousands of runners will descend on the city of Duluth this weekend for Grandma's Marathon.

There's good and bad news for drivers taking Interstate 35 to get there. According to MnDOT, lanes are already open on I-35 northbound near Pine City. The lane restrictions have been pushed out of the way for the entire weekend. Southbound lanes will open after 3 p.m. on Saturday and stay open all day Sunday.

Weekend closure: I-35W shuts down north of downtown Minneapolis

The traffic outlook isn't quite as rosy if you're traveling along I-35 near Harris. Interstate 35 is still reduced to one lane in both directions. The southbound ramps to and from Rush City remain closed as well. The project wraps up in October.

Meanwhile, crews have been working for weeks on a major resurfacing and bridge replacement project in the north metro. Interstate 35W is reduced to one lane just south of the Forest Lake Split. On I-35E and I-35 northbound there's a traffic shift in place from the Forest Lake Split to Highway 97. If you plan to exit at Highway 97, make sure you stay in the right lane.
