Temporary lane closure on northbound I-35W in Burnsville as crews install dike

Roseville, Minn. – Highway 41 will close between Highway 169 near Shakopee and Chaska Boulevard in Chaska beginning at 9 a.m. Tuesday, June 26, due to the rising water levels of the Minnesota River.

Highway 41 will remain closed until the water recedes and any damage to the road can be repaired.

Motorists are advised to check www.511mn.org and find an alternate route, including Highway 101, in order to bypass this closure.

Motorists in Burnsville should expect delays as crews close the right lane on I-35W between Cliff Road and Black Dog Road beginning at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 27. Drivers are reminded to pay attention for road crews working to build a dike that will help prevent flooding on I-35W.

All I-35W lanes are expected to reopen by 9:30 p.m., the same day.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation reminds all motorists that driving through moving water is dangerous. And that it is unlawful to drive through areas where roads are barricaded. Vehicles can be swept away in only several inches of moving water.

Motorists are encouraged to check 511mn.org for the latest road closure information.
