Cable median barriers are being installed on I-35 in Chisago County

Lane closures scheduled, expect delays
ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will experience intermittent lane and shoulder closures on both directions of Interstate 35 between Forest Lake and Harris as crews begin installing cable median barriers.

At 7 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 7, crews began reducing sections of southbound and northbound I-35 between Highway 8 and County Road 10 to a single lane.

The northbound lanes will re-open weekdays by 3 p.m. and southbound lanes will re-open by 7 p.m.
Motorists should prepare to slow down in work zone areas. 

Crews expect to complete the work on this 22-mile section of I-35 by mid-December, weather permitting.  Some minor clean-up work is anticipated in the spring 2014.

Cable median barrier prevents vehicles from crossing medians and into oncoming traffic. Installing cable median barriers in strategic locations helps prevent fatal and serious injury crashes.
