Concrete pavement repair closes southbound I-35E, Cedar Avenue ramps in Burnsville and Eagan next week

(Roseville, Minn.) – As concrete pavement repair begins on southbound Interstate 35E in Burnsville and Eagan next week, southbound traffic will be shifted to a single lane of traffic on the northbound side of the interstate between Cedar Avenue and Cliff Road. Following the traffic shift, both directions of the interstate will be in a single lane of traffic in each direction head-to-head.  At the same time, the ramps between Cedar Avenue and the southbound interstate will close. Single lane restrictions also will be extended northward to Diffley Road.

Weather permitting, concrete pavement repair in this stretch of roadway will be completed by late Monday, July 1 and southbound traffic will be shifted back to a single lane on the southbound side of the interstate and the ramps at Cedar Avenue will reopen.

Interstate 35E traffic has been reduced to a single lane of traffic in each direction since 12 midnight on Saturday, June 15 between the I-35E and the I-35/35W/35E split and Cedar Avenue. They will remain a single lane in each direction through mid-July.
All work is weather permitting and could change for inclement weather.
