Southbound Interstate 35W noise wall construction in Burnsville begins Sept. 7

Wall marks first work on MnPASS Express Lane extension project


Roseville, Minn. —Motorists and local residents may encounter work crews in the area of Interstate 35W between Burnsville Parkway and McAndrews Road beginning Tuesday, Sept. 7 as crews construct a noise wall along the west side of the roadway.

Most of the work will occur off the roadway and is not expected to affect traffic. All work will be complete by Nov. 15.

The noise wall marks the first work on the I-35W MnPASS Express Lanes Extension Project that will reduce congestion on northbound I-35W and provide commuters with more travel and transit options.

After the noise wall is complete, construction for the remainder of the project will begin in the summer of 2011, with all lanes open to traffic in Summer 2011.
