Weekend closure set Sept. 28-30 for joint repair work on southbound I-35E: Columbus to Vadnais Heights

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Southbound Interstate 35E will close the weekend of Sept. 28-30 to repair rough concrete pavement joints on the interstate between the I-35E/I-35W split in Columbus and Ramsey County Road 96 in Vadnais Heights, weather permitting.

Beginning at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 28th, MnDOT will start closing ramps along the southbound interstate. The southbound roadway will close at 8 p.m. During the closure, there will be no access to the southbound interstate in the project area. Motorists will be able to reach northbound I-35E and roadways will remain open across I-35E.

If all goes as planned, the highway will reopen by 12 noon on Sunday, Sept. 30th or sooner if possible.

The concrete pavement joints in this area were created when the old blacktop surface was removed and replaced with a nine-inch concrete surface in 2011.
