The Minnesota Department of Transportation is telling drivers to prepare for upcoming lane and ramp closures and travel delays on Interstate 35W between County Road C in Roseville and Sunset Avenue (County Road 53) on the Blaine/Lino Lakes border as the I-35W North MnPASS project begins Sunday.

The three-year project will see the construction of MnPASS Express Lanes, and the repaving of the freeway and ramps between the freeway and local roads and repair bridges, according to a MnDOT release.

In addition, the I-35W bridges over County Road C and County Road I are scheduled to be replaced.

  • Between Sunday and April 7, drivers will have to contend with overnight lane closures on I-35W North between County Road E2 and Interstate 694, and in both directions of I-35W between the southern Highway 10 interchange and County Road J. The lane closures will last from 8 p.m. to 5 a.m. as crews pave areas needed for future traffic shifts.
  • Then, beginning on April 8, long-term lane closures will occur on I-35W North between Roseville and Mounds View/Arden Hills. I-35W North will be reduced to two lanes between County Road C and Mounds View Boulevard (County Road 10), and reduced to three lanes between Mounds View Boulevard (County Road 10) and the northern Highway 10 interchange.
  • In April/early May, traffic on I-35W South between the northern Highway 10 interchange and Sunset Avenue will be shifted to the east side of the interstate. I-35W will remain two lanes in each direction in the area.
  • In mid-to-late May, drivers on I-35W South between County Road C and the northern Highway 10 interchange will also be shifted to the east side of the interstate and lanes will be reduced: to two lanes between County Road C and Mounds View Boulevard (County Road 10) and three lanes between Mounds View Boulevard (County Road 10) and the northern Highway 10 interchange.
  • Ramp closures along I-35W South will also take place between May and November. More information on the project can be found online.
