I-35W weekend closure scheduled to begin August 9
(Roseville, Minn.) – Motorists will encounter a detour and possible delays on southbound I-35W beginning Friday, Aug. 9.
At 10 p.m. I-35W between Hwy 13 and the I-35/35W/I-35E split will close as crews paint several bridges spanning the roadway.
All lanes on I-35W are scheduled to open by 5 a.m. Monday, Aug. 12.
