About the project

The travel lanes, shoulders, ramps and bridges along I-35 and I-35E between Elko and Eagan are in need of repairs. This project will address and improve these areas. A business liaison will work with local businesses to address specific concerns with construction.

  • Smoother ride and extended road life while reducing short-term maintenance costs
  • Updated pedestrian crossings will meet modern ADA standards
  • Drainage will be improved where needed
  • Repair and paint bridges where needed
  • Other repairs will be made under required closures to minimize any necessary inconvenience

Extend acceleration lane from CR 50 ramp to northbound I-35 to help improve flow. Review layout of acceleration lane extension (PDF, 2.3 MB)
