Here it comes again.
This will be the third weekend in a row that Interstate 35W has been closed in Minneapolis, although the new closure is less extensive than the previous two weekends.
Northbound and southbound lanes will close starting at 9 p.m. Friday between Fourth Street SE in Minneapolis and Minnesota Highway 36 in Roseville so crews can continue a resurfacing project, the Minnesota Department of Transportation says. The closure is set to last until 5 a.m. Monday.
Drivers heading south on I-35W will be able to use Minnesota Highway 280 to detour around the closure. But MnDOT says northbound traffic won't have access to Highway 280 from Interstate 94.
While the I-35W closure will likely be the biggest construction hassle this weekend, it won't be the only one.
