The detour is I-35W south to 46th Street to I-35W north to I-94 east
The ramp from I-394 east to I-94 east will be closed from 11 p.m. July 11 to 5 a.m. July 12 for the same work. This means eastbound Lowry Tunnel is down to 1 lane.
I-35W closing in Bloomington and Burnsville this weekend
The ramps close at 8 p.m. and the I-35W north will close from I-35E split to I-494 from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday.
Southbound will close from I-494 to 90th Street. The southbound freeway will be reduced to a single lane from 90th Street to I-35E split.
This closure is to allow crews to remove the 86th Street Bridge in Bloomington over I-35W. The 82nd Street Bridge will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday to 5 a.m. Monday. When it opens, it will be a single lane in each direction just like it is now. Crews are removing damaged parts of the bridge.
MnDOT will also be doing work during the closure at I-35W and McAndrews (Dakota County Road 38) and maintenance crews will be out during various improvements while the road is closed.
