It was only supposed to last two years.  Then, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton shut down operations last summer over the budget impasse;   Those four weeks of idling orange cones has dragged the I-35 Mega Project in the Twin Ports into Year Three.

Get ready for more delays as the work in the Duluth area resumes on May 9th.

Specifically:

Wednesday, May 9

I-35 will be restricted to a single lane in each direction from mile marker 211 to mile marker 221 between Moose Lake and Barnum.

Friday, May 11

Northbound I-35 will be restricted to a single lane from mile marker 190 to mile marker 202 between Sandstone and Willow River.

MnDOT officials have listed "later this year" as a target-date for completion.
