I-35W bridge construction update

Construction on the replacement of the existing bridge on I-35W across the Minnesota River and the bridge over 106th Street began in 2018 and will be completed in fall 2021. 

This MnDOT project includes reconstructing the I-35W Minnesota River bridge, adding a bicycle and pedestrian walk across the river on the new bridge, raising the grade of the freeway south of the river out of the 100-year flood plain, adding a northbound truck acceleration lane from Cliff Road to 106th Street and reconstructing the freeway bridge over 106th Street. 

Drivers should expect to see the 106th Street southbound entrance ramp to I-35W south closed through summer 2021 and the southbound ramp from I-35W to Cliff Street closed through early September. Traffic on 106th Street between Verdi Road and Lyndale Avenue South is also reduced to a single lane in both directions. There are also alternating lane closures in both directions on I-35W between Cliff Road in Burnsville and 106th Street daily, 7 p.m. – 6 a.m.
