I-35/I-90 ramp closures begin Sept. 20



ROCHESTER, Minn. — Motorists will encounter periodic ramp closures at the Interstate 35/Interstate 90 interchange in Freeborn County beginning Tuesday, Sept. 20, as crews set poles and install lighting.

The upgraded intersection lighting will improve safety at the I-35/I-90 interchange.

Mankato Electric, Inc. is the prime contractor for the project.
