Minn. Minnesota Department of Transportation maintenance
crews will make repairs and inspect the anti-icing system tonight
on the Interstate 35W Mississippi River bridge near downtown Minneapolis.
Beginning at 9:30 p.m. this evening, motorists should watch for
lane closures on both north and southbound I-35W between Washington
Avenue and University Avenue.
The left three lanes in both directions will be closed throughout
the night until 5 a.m. Friday morning.
The closures are needed so workers can repair a bridge panel in
the northbound lanes and conduct the annual fall inspection of
the I-35W bridge anti-icing system. This inspection involves checking
and cleaning (as needed) all spray disks and nozzles and several
of the valve units in the anti-icing system.
