An inspection project will bring a one-day temporary closure to one of the ramps associated with the Blatnik Bridge.  Officials with the Minnesota Department of Transportation are alerting the general public that the southbound I-35 ramp to I-535 (Blatnik Bridge) will be closed for bridge inspection on Thursday, October 17.  The closure will only affect daytime traffic as the ramp will close at 9:00 AM and is expected to be reopen by 2:30 PM.

MNDOT is also reminding drivers that there will also be alternate lane closures on northbound I-35 in that area during the same time.  As with any inspection or construction work, MNDOT urges drivers to exercise safety and caution and to make sure that they remain alert for changing conditions in the work zone.
