Portions of Interstate 35W are closing down again this weekend. The good news is, it's a much shorter stretch than the previous two weekends.
Crews will be resurfacing the interstate in both directions between 4th Street in Minneapolis and County Road C in Roseville. Lanes along I-35W will close by 9 p.m., with ramps in the area closing at 8 p.m. The roadway will reopen by 5 a.m. Monday.
Drivers will be detoured along I-94, I-35E and I-694. Depending on which direction you're traveling from, there will be some access to Highway 280. Drivers on I-35W southbound and Highway 36 westbound can still use the southbound lanes of Highway 280. Once again, I-94 traffic will not be able to exit onto Highway 280 northbound, but lanes along that route will stay open in both directions from University Avenue to Larpenteur Avenue. Another note for Highway 36 motorists: traffic heading westbound will not have access to the northbound lanes of I-35W.
There are more closures on the way for I-35W as the southbound lanes are scheduled to close next weekend, plus two more closures are set for September. You'll be happy to hear that I-35W will stay open during the Minnesota State Fair and over Labor Day weekend. Learn more about the project.
For the second weekend in a row, Highway 7 will be reduced to one lane. A resurfacing project has been underway for a number of weeks along the highway in St. Louis Park, Hopkins, and Minnetonka. Crews will work between Louisiana Avenue and I-494 this weekend starting at 7 tonight until 5 a.m. Monday. Learn more about the project.
