ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Starting Friday, June 9, the Minnesota Department of Transportation will begin the last of three weekend closures of northbound I-35W between I-35E in Burnsville and I-494 in Bloomington so crews can continue resurfacing I-35W and improving ramps, sidewalks, and signals at several intersections

Beginning 10 p.m. Friday, June 9 through 5 a.m. Monday, June 12 northbound I-35W will be closed. All northbound ramps between I-35E and 82nd Street, and the southbound I-35W E-ZPass lane between 82nd Street and 94th Street will also be closed during this time. Motorists will be detoured to I-35E to Highway 77 to I-494. Local access to northbound I-35W will remain open at 82nd Street via Lyndale Avenue.

After the weekend closure, the following ramps and lanes will be closed:

Through late August:
