Lane Closures For I-35 Northbound In Duluth, October 31
A daytime task list tied to the Twin Ports Interchange Project will close one of the lanes along I-35 on Monday, October 31.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation is alerting drivers to a necessary lane closure for the right hand lane on the northbound lanes of I-35 within the Twin Ports Interchange (Can of Worms) area. Drivers will encounter the lane closure from 27th Avenue West to Garfield Avenue between the hours of 9:00 AM and 5:00 PM.
According to MNDOT, the closure is needed in order for work crews to set bridge girders in place.
While the transportation agency fully anticipates that the work - and the related lane closure - will be complete within the timetable released, drivers should be aware of the potential need for an extension or "rain date". As with most outdoor road construction projects, a variety of different things can alter that schedule - including unforeseen items and the weather.
Even though the typical road construction season has wrapped up for the year, work will continue throughout the winter months on the multi-year Twin Ports Interchange Project. MNDOT anticipates progressing with their full work schedule even as the snow flies and the temperatures drop. For the most part, though, drivers shouldn't expect to see any major alterations to the traffic flow through the road project area - as both the northbound and the southbound lanes of I-35 have just recently been re-installed in their (somewhat) permanent setting.
