Northbound I-35W in Burnsville, Bloomington closing June 4-7

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists traveling northbound on Interstate 35W between Burnsville and Bloomington will encounter a full closure starting Friday, June 4.
Beginning at 10 p.m. Friday, June 4, northbound I-35W will close between the I-35/I-35E/I-35W split in Burnsville and 106th Street in Bloomington. The following ramps also will close at 9 p.m.:

  • County Road 42 ramp to northbound I-35W
  • Northbound I-35W ramps to/from Burnsville Parkway
  • Northbound I-35W ramps to/from Highway 13
  • Southbound I-35W ramps to/from Cliff Road
  • Southbound I-35W ramps to/from Black Dog Road
  • Southbound I-35W ramps to/from 106th Street

Motorists should follow the signed detour using I-35E, Highway 77 and I-494 or find alternate routes to bypass the closure.

All northbound I-35W lanes and ramps are expected to reopen by 5 a.m. Monday, June 7.

Southbound I-35W and all associated entrance and exit ramps within the area will remain open.

These road and ramp closures 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.
