Then, Tuesday, northbound I-35W will be down to a single lane along that same stretch from 9 a.m.-3 p.m.

MnDOT reports the potholes are particularly impacting the Downtown to Crosstown construction zone.

"The pavement on I-35W has taken a beating this winter causing large potholes and rutting through the project area," MnDOT wrote in a statement. "Despite temperatures still being low, we're working closely with an asphalt plant that makes hot mix for patching potholes and they have agreed to open for us this week so we're able to make longer lasting fixes on the road."

Addtionally, MnDOT crews will work to fill potholes on eastbound Interstate 94 from 7-10 p.m. Monday. The interstate will be reduced to two lanes between Interstate 394 and Washington Avenue during that time.

Then, eastbound I-94 will be reduced to one lane starting at 10 p.m. Monday along that stretch so crews can finish patching.

MnDOT stated all lanes are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Tuesday.
