Northbound I-35W in Burnsville, Bloomington closure for May 21-24 has been postponed

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The northbound Interstate 35W closure between Burnsville and Bloomington that was scheduled for this weekend has been postponed due to the expected rain in the forecast. We will send out a new date for the northbound closure when the new date has been determined.
These road and ramp closure are part of a multiyear project to replace the I-35W Minnesota River Bridge between Burnsville and Bloomington. The work will include reconstructing the I-35W Bridge spanning the Minnesota River and 106th Street, replacing pavement from Cliff Road to 106th Street and constructing a trail between Black Dog Road and Lyndale Avenue.
MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slowdown in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
