Interstate 35W in the Twin Cities will be closed from 10 p.m. Friday until 5 a.m. Monday as crews work to tear down the 38th Street bridge. 

Specific closures include northbound 35W from Hwy. 62 to I-94, and southbound 35W from I-94 to 46th Street. 

The detour in place out of downtown Minneapolis will take you westbound on 394 to south Hwy. 100. Going northbound, the detour runs from Hwy. 62 to northbound 100 and into Minneapolis via eastbound 394. 

Additionally, the ramp from 36th Street to southbound 35W is now closed and will remain that way until the fall of 2021. The detour in place will have drivers go south on 35W from 46th Street.
