RiderAlertFranklin.110908.JPG
Route 2 will begin a long-term detour starting Monday, September 18th. MnDOT will remove and reconstruct the Franklin Avenue Bridge over I-35W, as part of the 35W@94 Downtown to Crosstown project. The new bridge will not open until mid-2018.

Changes in the route and additional travel times are reflected in the online schedule. Additional signage and information will be placed at effected bus stops. Pedestrians and drivers will also be detoured.

I-35W Construction Heats Up

Along with the warm September weather, construction on I-35W south of Downtown Minneapolis is also heating up. The 35W@94 Downtown to Crosstown project has begun and construction is in full swing.

The next couple of weeks are filled with a fair amount of traffic impacts. Sign up for rider alerts to stay in the know about your transit routes. Here’s the scoop on the upcoming lane, ramp and bridge closures:

Ramp Closures

  • 12th St to southbound I-35W

​Express and limited stop riders on I-35W will notice delays leaving Downtown in the afternoon. The number of lanes will be reduced until late 2017.

  • 31st St to southbound I-35W

​The southbound ramp will be closed until early October for utility work. A detour for drivers is in place.

  • Southbound I-35W to 35th St

​Starting Thursday 9/21 the ramp from 1-35W to 35th/36th St will close for one week. Route 133 and Route 135 riders will be affected.

Lane Closures

  • MnPASS northbound

​Express and limited stop riders on I-35W will notice delays into Downtown in the morning rush hour starting near 26th St. The MnPASS shoulder lane is not expected to re-open until 2018.

  • I-35W at 40th St

​Starting Monday 9/25 there will be perodic lane closures of I-35W for utility work. Express and limited stop riders on I-35W will notice delays on their commutes.

  • Portland Avenue Bridge

Starting Saturday 9/30 the Portland Ave Bridge over I-94 will be closed to drivers and buses. Pedestrians and bicyclists will still be able to cross the freeway. Route 9 will detour to Chicago Avenue in the southbound direction.

Freeway Closures

  • MnDOT is planning to close I-35W in both directions between Highway 62 and I-94 on two weekends. The first closure will be late 9/29 through early 10/2. There are many events this weekend and the Blue Line will be one of the best ways into Downtown Minneapolis. The second closure will be 10/6 through 10/8.
The METRO Orange Line is a planned Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) line along I-35W between downtown Minneapolis and Burnsville. It will use roadway improvements, upgraded transit stations, Park & Ride facilities and improved bus routes to provide fast, frequent and reliable all-day service. Implementation is expected in 2019.
