During construction, most SB I-35W ramps close for several weeks at a time. No two consecutive ramps will be closed at the same time. I-35W ramps to/from I-694 and at the northern Hwy 10 interchange will remain open. All traffic impacts are tentative and weather dependent.


Crews have completed activities in this area for the 2019 construction season. For the winter months, I-35W between Roseville and Lino Lakes will remain in its current configuration, with three lanes open in both directions.

Local road restrictions

April through November 2021
  • The left-turn lane from SB Snelling Ave. (Hwy 51) to Hamline Ave. in Arden Hills is closed


Information about upcoming traffic impacts will be posted as details become available.

Project schedule and staging

The I-35W North MnPASS project will be done in stages. Learn more about the stages and anticipated schedule.

Night Work

Some work will need to occur at night, especially if temporary additional lane closures are needed. Crews will try to minimize night work and noise, but please expect to hear overnight activity periodically. If night work needs to occur on local streets or an activity is expected to be particularly noisy, updates will be posted and sent out by email. Sign up for email updates.

Local traffic mitigation

MnDOT has installed temporary traffic control on local roads to manage local road impacts due to construction.
