I-35W E-ZPass lanes between 38th St. and 46th St. closed Feb. 10 - 20

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Beginning at 9 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10 through 5 a.m. Monday, Feb. 20, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will close the E-ZPass lanes in both directions between 38th St. and 46th St. This closure is necessary so crews can complete drainage work in the median.

Motorists are urged to plan ahead and allow extra time to reach their destination. All construction activities and traffic impacts are weather dependent and subject to change.

MnDOT is constructing six underground storm water storage tanks east of I-35W in Minneapolis between 42nd St. and 40th St. The tanks will help reduce flooding by collecting and storing excess storm water while the drainage system catches up, and then release the water gradually through drainage pipes to the Mississippi River.
