Interstate 35W closing June 25- 28 as 5th Street ramp rehabilitation begins

Overnight I-35W lane closures also to occur June 21-24 and June 28- July 3


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Metro area motorists will experience delays and a detour when I-35W closes between Interstate 94 and Highway 280 at 10 p.m. Friday, June 25. The ramps to southbound I-35W in this area will begin closing at 9 p.m.


 The roadway and ramps will re-open at 5:30 a.m. Monday, June 28.


The closure is necessary as crews begin a major rehabilitation of the ramp from Interstate 94 to 5th Street in Minneapolis. The 5th Street ramp spans Interstate 35W and necessitates the closure.


The ramp to 5th Street from westbound I-94 will be closed beginning at 8 p.m. June 25 and will remain closed until July 31. Motorists will be detoured to the 11th Street exit in order to access 5th Street.
