I-35 traffic switch in Chisago County rescheduled for April 6

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Motorists will encounter a traffic switch, lane closures and other construction activities on Interstate 35 from just north of Harris to the Chisago/Pine County line starting April 6, weather permitting.
Following guidance from state health officials and to prevent further spread of COVID-19, MnDOT crews will maintain social distancing practices while working.

Beginning at 7 a.m. Monday, April 6, motorists will be down to a single lane in each direction on I-35 between Harris and the Chisago/Pine County line while construction crews begin restriping the pavement lines and shifting traffic to the southbound lanes to begin reconstructing the northbound lanes.

The work is expected to be complete by mid-summer 2020.
