Northbound I-35E MnPASS lane closure in the East Metro rescheduled Sept. 8-10

ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Motorists will encounter a lane and shoulder closure on northbound I-35E in the east metro this weekend as crews complete concrete shoulder work.

Beginning at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 8, northbound I-35E will be reduced to two lanes between County Rd E in Vadnais Heights and County Highway 96 in White Bear Lake. The lane that will temporarily close is the MnPASS lane. In addition, the adjacent shoulder will also close. The work is expected to be complete by 5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 10, weather permitting. The work was originally scheduled to take place Aug. 25 through Aug. 27, but was recently rescheduled due to rain.

The shoulder construction is part of the two-year I-35E Goose Lake Road and Highway 96 road resurfacing project. In addition to resurfacing, the work includes widening the road, re-decking and widening the Highway 96 bridge, replacing the I-35E bridges over Goose Lake Road, updating drainage, repairing guardrail and constructing a trail. The work is expected to be complete by late summer 2017.
