Crosstown reconstruction: Nicollet shutdown extended

The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) has announced that the closure of Nicollet Avenue South at I-35W/Highway 62 Crosstown has been extended.

Nicollet Avenue South will remain closed through Friday, Sept. 7. It has been closed since Aug. 27.

The extended closure is to allow crews to continue work on a new ramp along southbound I-35W/eastbound Highway 62.

Those two highways will be open during the extended closure of Nicollet Avenue South.

However, weather permitting, all lanes of both I-35W from I-94 to Highway 62/Crosstown, and westbound Highway 62 (from Cedar Avenue/Highway 77 to Lyndale Avenue South), will be closed from 10 p.m. this Friday, Sept. 7 through 5 a.m. Monday, Sept. 10.
