The weather postponed the start of the project originally, but it looks like all signs are positive for the road construction project on I-35 just south of Duluth to begin Monday, May 6th.

The following lane restrictions will be in effect:

Motorists traveling north and south on I-35, just south of Boundary Avenue in Duluth, will be restricted to a single lane, while crews resume construction of a median crossover, weather permitting. Motorists will be restricted to a single lane for about a mile.

Construction of the crossover is expected to take until approximately May 16. As soon as it is completed, all I-35 traffic will be moved to the southbound lanes.

Benefits of the completed project include:

  • • New concrete
  • • New paved shoulders and guardrail
  • • Improved drainage and bridges
  • • Improved safety
