DULUTH, MN. (Northern News Now) - Major traffic shakeups are coming to I-35 near the Twin Ports Interchange starting Friday night, including lengthy detour for some drivers headed north.
Due to the construction of the Twin Ports Interchange Project, a few sections of I-35 will be closed starting at 7p.m. Friday, March 24 through 6 p.m. Sunday, March, 26.
According to MnDOT, these closures are needed as crews erect bridge girders over I-35 as part of the project.
The following areas will be affected:
- Southbound I-35 will be routed into a single lane onto Lower Michigan Street between Garfield Avenue and 27th Avenue West.
- Northbound I-35 will close completely between 40th Avenue West and Garfield Avenue. All northbound traffic will be routed off I-35 at 40th Avenue West. The signed detour will follow Highway 2 (Bong Bridge) to Superior, Wisconsin then onto Highway 535 (Blatnik Bridge) and back into Duluth.
