I-35 lane closures begin, will remain through winter

Updated: October 18, 2020 10:30 PM

Beginning Monday, Oct. 19 motorists travelling on northbound and southbound I-35 will encounter lane closures at 27th Avenue West and near the Garfield Avenue overpass in Duluth.

Lane closures will remain in place through winter while crews construct crossover ramps in preparation of major construction on the Twin Ports Interchange project beginning spring of 2021.

Current work will also help facilitate replacement of the 27th Avenue West Bridge this winter.

Lane closures will remain in place for approximately 3 to 4 weeks during construction of median crossovers on I-35.

Once the crossovers are complete, I-35 will be returned to two lanes each direction with periodic daytime lane closures to facilitate replacement of the 27th Avenue West Bridge this winter.

Motorists are encouraged to allow for extra time and check www.511mn.
