Drivers Heading North for the Weekend Will Encounter Lane and Ramp Closures

August 10, 2018 06:48 PM

More changes are in place in a very busy work zone north of the Twin Cities. The ramp from Interstate 35 southbound to County Road 7 near Pine City is now closed. Motorists will be detoured to Highway 70 until August 23. The interstate has been down to one lane for weeks along a nearly seven-mile stretch from the south Pine County line to the Snake River in Pine City. All lanes and ramps are expected to reopen in October. Learn more about the project.

In central Minnesota, Highway 169 is under construction. The roadway is down to one lane in both directions between Central Avenue in Garrison and north of Crow Wing County Road 26 near Pike Point. Traffic is currently sharing the southbound lanes. The project wraps up this fall in late October. Learn more.
