The ramp from southbound I-35 to eastbound Highway 2 will close Thursday, August 16 through Thursday, August 30. This closure will allow crews to paint the portion of the ramp that is over water. To expedite progress, the contractor will work seven days per week during this closure.

The signed detour will be south on I-35 to Central Avenue, back north on I-35 and right on the ramp to eastbound Highway 2.
