The Minnesota Department of Transportation (Mn/DOT) says motorists may experience delays as the left lane of the ramp from northbound I-35W to 3rd Street closes at 9 a.m. Monday, and Tuesday, May 14 and 15.
These lane closures are necessary as crews work on the Hiawatha Light Rail Bridge Corridor Light Rail Transit (CCLRT) Bridge that spans the freeway.
The left lane of the ramp will reopen by 3 p.m. May 14 and May 15.

Motorists are advised to follow the posted detours during the closures or use alternative routes to avoid congestion.0 7*
The I-694 North Central Interchange Reconstruction project (I-694/Highway10/Snelling and Hamline Avenues in the northern Twin Cities Metro area) began in September 2011. The project will result in improved traffic flow, with refigured lanes, rebuilt bridges and improved pavement structure in this high demand corridor.
