Resurfacing, bridge replacement project begins April 16 in Pine County

DULUTH, Minn. — A two-year, major resurfacing and bridge replacement project begins Monday, April 16 on
I-35 between Pine City and the Pine/Chisago County line. Motorists traveling through the project area will encounter single lane closures from April 16 to the end of May 2018. During this period bypasses and crossover lanes will be constructed.

From June until October 2018 motorists will be restricted to two lane, two way traffic (one lane in each direction).

MnDOT expects backups during peak travel times and strongly suggests that motorists travel during off-peak days and times, consider taking an alternate route and check 511mn.org before traveling.

The finished project will provide seven miles of new pavement, improved safety and new bridges.
