I-35 lane closures and detours between Scanlon and Boundary Avenue in Duluth are set to change Thursday, Aug. 1


DULUTH, Minn. – Motorists will be restricted to a single lane in each direction on the northbound lanes while the southbound lanes are being reconstructed.

On Thursday, Aug. 1 through Friday, Aug. 2, traffic will be switched to the newly-constructed northbound lanes and will remain in that configuration until project completion in mid-October.

All ramps at the County Road 61 and Midway Road interchanges will be open to traffic except:

  • The southbound exit ramp from I-35 to County Road 61
  • The southbound entrance ramp from Midway Road to I-35

Detour signing will be provided for the closed ramps.  All businesses will remain accessible during this project using marked detour routes.

When the I-35 resurfacing and drainage repair project is finished, motorists will experience a smoother, safer ride.
