Crosstown closure postponed

The ramp connecting Interstate 35W north to eastbound Highway 62 was scheduled to close this week and early next week, but the closure has been postponed until Oct. 29-31 and Nov. 3-4 due to poor weather and "schedule adjustments," according to a Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) update.

The ramp closure is now scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 29-31 and Nov. 3-4.
It will be closed so crews can remove sheet piling. Motorists are asked to follow posted detours.

On the bright side, I-35W and westbound Highway 62 will remain open during the closures, including the ramp from southbound I-35W to eastbound Highway 62.

And the work will be done during daytime hours, rather than at night, to limit truck noise.
