  • On Monday, June 20, construction will begin on I-35 near Barnum. Initial work will be construction of median crossovers in preparation for two-way, head-to-head traffic traveling on southbound I-35. While median work is taking place, motorists can expect daytime lane closures in the inside lanes.
  • The northbound side of Interstate 35 will be closed starting July 5 for the duration of construction with northbound traffic shifted to the southbound side under two-way head-to-head configuration.
  • Northbound Exit 220 at Barnum will be closed for approximately 10 weeks with exit traffic detoured at Exit 214 through Moose Lake along Hwy 73 and County Road 61 to Barnum.
