According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, southbound lanes of I-35W from Interstate 494 to Highway 13 will close starting at 10 p.m. Friday and will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.

The following ramps will close at 9 p.m. Friday:

  • Eastbound I-494 to southbound I-35W
  • I-35W ramps to/from 82nd Street
