I-35W project in south Minneapolis to be done Sept. 10


Minnesota Department of Transportation

The new flyover bridge that will carry traffic from northbound I-35W to westbound I-94 is part of the $240 million "Crosstown to Downtown" construction project and expected to open Sept. 10.

Motorists who drive on Interstate 35W in south Minneapolis likely will be celebrating - and maybe even honking their horns, too - on Sept. 10. That's when the Minnesota Department of Transportation says it will be done with the massive rebuilding of the freeway that has shifted traffic around for the past four years.

"It's been a long haul and people are anxious for the reopening," south Minneapolis resident Teresa Erickson said in an e-mail in which she asked how much longer she'll have to dodge orange cones.

Before COVID-19, Erickson and her husband rode Metro Transit express buses to downtown Minneapolis but have driven more often since the pandemic started because many express routes were cut and have yet to return. Driving has hardly been smooth sailing.
