Project schedule and staging

The I-35W North MnPASS project will be done in stages. Learn more about the stages and anticipated schedule.

Night Work

Some work will need to occur at night, especially if temporary additional lane closures are needed. Crews will try to minimize night work and noise, but please expect to hear overnight activity periodically. If night work needs to occur on local streets or an activity is expected to be particularly noisy, updates will be posted and sent out by email. Sign up for email updates.

Local traffic mitigation

MnDOT has installed temporary traffic control on local roads to manage local road impacts due to construction.
