A short-term project will necessitate the closure of one of the southbound lanes of I-35 near Boundary Avenue.  The left hand southbound lane of I-35 in the Boundary Avenue area will be closed starting at 12 Noon on Monday, August 16 in order to allow work crews access to complete a project.  The closure will be short-term and is not directly tied to the Twin Ports Interchange work.

According to details released by the Minnesota Department of Transportation in advance of the project, work crews will be making repairs to a catch basin that's located in that area and near that lane.  The initial timeline for the road construction work shows that MNDOT anticipates wrapping up the project by the end of the week - at which time the lane would be reopened to normal traffic. As with any summer, outdoor road work, a variety of factors could have an effect on that timeline, though - including both weather and other unanticipated situations.

For details on this specific piece of road construction work, visit the project page on the homepage of the Minnesota Department of Transportation.  In addition to this project, you'll also find a wealth of information, details, and updates on all of the summer road construction projects that the Minnesota Department of Transportation coordinates statewide.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
