Southbound I-35E/Maryland Avenue ramps to open late Aug. 20

 

ST. PAUL, Minn. —The ramp from southbound I-35E to Maryland Avenue and the ramp from Maryland Avenue to southbound I-35E will reopen by 11 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20.

 

Crews over the weekend used an automated machine called a Self-Propelled Modular Transporter (SPMT) to move the new Maryland Avenue Bridge into position. The two 1,300-ton spans, built alongside I-35E, were moved into place using this new construction technology.

 

Both directions of Interstate 35E between Hwy 36 and I-94 reopened late on Aug. 18.

 

MnDOT has posted a time-lapse view of the move on its web site at www.mndot.gov.

 

More information about he I-35E Maryland Avenue Bridge project is available at http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/35estpaul/maryland.html.
