Construction Updates

I-35 North Metro Split

In 2018 and 2019, I35 will be undergoing some major construction, which will involve delays and back-ups during peak times.  There are alternate routes you can take easily if you are coming from the South.
  • From the SW take 35W to CR23 exit at Lino Lakes.  Take this to Running Aces Blvd and take a right  
  • From the SE take Hwy 61 to west on 180th St. N. for approximately 3 miles.  At the “T” take a right on 20th Ave. N. which turns into the freeway frontage road.  Take a left at Running Aces Blvd at Gander Outdoors

About this project
Six miles of I-35 from just south of the I-35 split to a half mile north of Hwy 8 at the Chisago/Washington county line will be resurfaced. Road resurfacing helps to preserve and extend the use of the pavement. The work will also include replacing three bridges.

Summary of work
Resurface existing pavement
Replace the Hwy 97 bridge over I-35 with a diverging diamond interchange for better traffic flow and improved safety
Update crosswalks at Hwy 97 to meet modern accessibility standards
Replace the flyover ramp from WB Hwy 8 to SB I-35 with a loop ramp
Drainage improvements
