Northbound I-35W in Minneapolis, St. Anthony, Roseville closing July 13-16

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists traveling northbound on Interstate 35W between Roseville and Minneapolis will encounter a detour beginning Friday, July 13 at 10 p.m. through 5 a.m. Monday, July 16, weather permitting.

Northbound I-35W will be closing between Fourth Street Southeast in Minneapolis and Ramsey County Road C in Roseville for road resurfacing. Crews will begin closing the on and off ramps along northbound I-35W around 9 p.m., approximately one hour before closing the interstate.

Motorists will be detoured around the closure via I-694, I-35E, I-94 and Hwy 280.

There will be a combination of five additional northbound and southbound I-35W closures between Fourth Street Southeast and Ramsey County Road C tentatively scheduled for the following weekends:

  • July 27-30
  • Aug. 3-6
  • Aug. 10-13
  • Aug. 17-20

One additional weekend closure will occur in September to complete the I-35W/Hwy 36/Cleveland Avenue interchange. These five closures are weather dependent and subject to change.  Motorists should plan ahead, determine an alternate route and provide additional time to reach their destinations.
