MnDOT is designing a road project that includes adding a lane, in each direction, to I-35W between Hwy 36 in Roseville and Lexington Ave. (Co Rd 17) in Blaine. MnDOT is also analyzing the need and locations for building noise walls along the interstate.

MnDOT's goal is to design a project that:

  • Reduces congestion and improves safety on the highway
  • Increases the number of people that are moved along the highway during peak hours
  • Provides reliable travel times for commuters during peak hours
  • Optimizes and reuses existing roads and bridges (without needing to acquire homes and properties)

To learn why a construction project is necessary in this location, visit the background page.


  • The project is not fully funded.

Through the Corridors of Commerce program, the project was awarded $1.1 million in State funds and $800,000 in Federal funds.

Local and federal elected officials and the Governor of Minnesota support the efforts to design this project. They have helped secure funding with the goal of having a project that is ready for construction when funding becomes available.
