[ARCHIVED] I-35E Closures This Weekend & Next Beginning at 10 p.m. Tonight

Road Closed Sign

Concrete pavement repairs will require two full weekend  closures of I-35E the next two weekends between I-694 in Vadnais  Heights and I-35 in Columbus. The full closures are needed so construction  crews can repair contraction joints running across the full width of the  highway. The joints allow the pavement to expand and contract with the rise and  fall of temperatures, which helps prevent cracks or other damage to the  pavement.

The northbound interstate will close at 10 p.m. Friday, Oct.  13 and remain closed until about 5 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 16. The following  weekend, southbound I-35E will close from 8 p.m. Friday, Oct, 20 until about 5  a.m. Monday, Oct. 23. During the closures, traffic will detour on I-694, I-35W  and I-35. If work is completed sooner than planned, the interstate will reopen  earlier.

In case of rain or other inclement weather, work will be  postponed until the following weekend.
