As if the headaches of the Lowry Hill Tunnel repairs weren't enough, another traffic headache is coming this weekend.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is closing Interstate 35W starting at 10PM Friday. Northbound lanes will be closed from the Burnsville split with I-35E to Interstate 494 in Bloomington. Southbound lanes will be closed from I-494 to 90th Street. Then, just one open lane from 90th Street to the Burnsville split.

This is so the 86th Street bridge can be removed for replacement and other maintenance and road repaving.

Traffic will be detoured onto I-35E and Cedar Avenue/Highway 77. All lanes are scheduled to open by 5AM Monday.
