MnDOT planning ramp closure as part of 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown work

MnDOT plans to close the ramp from southbound I-35W to 35th Street beginning around 5 a.m. Friday, Sept. 22 for underground utility work. The ramp will be closed for about one week and motorists will be detoured to the 46th Street ramp.

There will also be a right lane closure on northbound I-35W around 40th Street starting 5 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 25. The closure is expected to take one week as crews work on underground utilities.

The closures are part of the 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown project, a four-year reconstruction project of I-35W between 43rd Street and downtown Minneapolis. The project will improve accessibility, safety and mobility in the project area including better access to the Lake Street business district and transit service on I-35W and Lake Street. Work is expected to be complete in fall 2021.
