35W and 106 overpass

In progress: I-35W bridges

MnDOT’s work on the I-35W Minnesota River bridge and 106th Street bridge is in full swing. Crews began alternating lane closures on southbound I-35W in October. MnDOT crews plan to maintain three lanes of traffic in each direction during the bridge reconstruction work.

Crews also closed the 106th Street ramp to southbound I-35W in October. It will remain closed until late 2021. Motorists should follow the signed detour using northbound I-35W and 98th Street to access southbound I-35W.

These lane and ramp closures are part of a multiyear project to replace the I-35W Minnesota River bridge between Burnsville and Bloomington. The work will include reconstructing the I-35W bridge spanning the Minnesota River and the bridge at 106th Street, replacing pavement from Cliff Road to 106th Street and constructing a trail between Black Dog Road and Lyndale Avenue. 

MnDOT urges motorists to remain attentive at all times, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
