Many will notice a few more construction barrels along Interstate 35W. Overnight, crews closed the MnPASS lane on I-35W northbound from 26th St. into downtown Minneapolis. They also re-striped the lanes just south of the Highway 65 split.
There are just two lanes open now leading into downtown Minneapolis. The MnPASS lane will reopen in mid-June. The work is related to the larger I-35W project from downtown to the crosstown.
Watch for a couple of major overnight closures along Interstate 35W next week. The northbound lanes between Highway 62 and I-94 will close Wednesday, April 18. The southbound lanes will shut down Thursday, April 19. The closures will take place in the overnight hours only between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. and are related to the work on the 38th Street Bridge in south Minneapolis.
A major ramp closure into downtown Minneapolis has been postponed again. The ramp from I-94 westbound to 11th Street closes Thursday, April 19, weather permitting. The work was scheduled to begin on Monday morning. Once the ramp shuts down, it won't reopen until mid-June. In the meantime, drivers will be detoured to the Hennepin Ave and Lyndale Avenue exit. Drivers can travel north on Hennepin Avenue to 12th Street.
The good news is, drivers will still have access to the 11th Street exit from I-35W northbound. The work is related to the larger I-35W work from downtown to the crosstown. Learn more.
