Interstate 35W closing tonight in Arden Hills, Mounds View

Closure needed to set bridge piers over the interstate


ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Both directions of Interstate 35W will be closed overnight from 10 p.m. Tuesday, July 31 to 5 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 1. The closure is needed as crews set beams for the new westbound Hwy 10/County Road 10 bridge over the interstate. During the closure, traffic will follow a signed detour using I-694, Highway 252 and Highway 10.


Two additional overnight closures of I-35W in the same area are tentatively scheduled to take place on Monday, Aug. 6 and Tuesday, Aug. 7 to allow crews to place beams for the new eastbound bridge spanning the interstate. Traffic will use the same detour route as above.

Construction of the new eastbound and westbound Highway 10/County Road 10 bridges crossing I-35W began in late May and will be completed by November 2012.
