We plan to do some work between Washington Ave. and Portland Ave. for the next three months. Crews will resurface I-35W, repair 11 ramps, and make drainage and median improvements, weather permitting.

Beginning 10 p.m. Fri, Aug. 9, I-35W will be closed between I-94 and Hwy 280 through 5 a.m. Mon, Aug. 12, between I-94 and Hwy 280. Ramps will close about an hour earlier.

Motorists will be detoured to Hwy 280 and I-94. Motorists can go north on I-35W from Washington Ave.

Overnight closure of I-35W ramps near downtown August 8
Crews will be working overnight Thursday and we will need to close some ramps from 10 p.m. Thu, Aug. 8 to 5 a.m. Fri, Aug. 9.

The following ramps will be closed:
  • Washington Ave. to Southbound I-35W
  • Third St. to SB I-35W
  • Fourth St. to SB I-35W
  • SB I-35W to Hwy 55
  • SB I-35W to 11th Ave.
  • SB  I-35 to WB I-94
The detour for WB I-94 is Hwy 280 to WB I-94.

This closure will limit access to I-35W from downtown. The detour is Washington Ave. to Riverside Ave, to Cedar Ave, to WB I-94.

Crews have some work on the I-35W medians to complete. Beginning 8 p.m. Fri, Aug. 16, I-35W will be reduced to a single lane in both directions between I-94 and Washington Ave. through 5 a.m. Mon, Aug. 19.
