As summer road construction season starts to get ready to open up, a variety of traffic impacts will start to appear for Twin Ports drivers - especially within the multi-year Twin Ports Interchange project. Work there has continued throughout the winter, but the warmer weather and nicer temperatures will see activity within that work zone ramp up.

Along those lines, the Minnesota Department of Transportation is alerting drivers to some traffic impacts that are set to begin within the Twin Ports Interchange (Can of Worms) - starting Wednesday, April 12.

According to the details being shared by MNDOT, drivers can anticipate two-lane, two-way traffic on the northbound side of I-35. The traffic lane shifts will be made to accomodate accessibility for work crews as they continue their overhead projects.  Specifically, this traffic impact will allow for girder erection and deck forming, which will happen over the existing and permanent southbound lanes of I-35 in that area.

At the same time, the southbound off ramp to 27th Avenue West will also be closed during this time to allow for the work.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation expects that the work will only last a week and a half. With the project starting on April 12, that means that the state agency fully expects that the task list - and the corresponding traffic impacts - will be wrapped up by Friday, April 21. As with any outdoor project, a variety of conditions could impact that - including but not limited to the weather.
