I-35 ramps closed at Hillside Ave./CR 7 for 2 weeks

Interstate 35 northbound ramps will be closed at the southern Pine City exit (Hillside Avenue/Highway 7) beginning on Wednesday, June 13 in Pine County.

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, the northbound ramps at Highway 7 will close for approximately two weeks. A detour to northbound I-35 will be in place for Highway 7 traffic at Highway 70 and County Road 11.

These new restrictions are part of the ongoing project to replace the eastern (northbound lane) Snake River Bridge and resurface seven miles of I-35 in 2018.

A width restriction of 12 feet will be in place.

The next stage of road work in 2018 is construction of seven miles of southbound (west lanes) pavement on I-35 between Highway 70 and the Snake River bridge.

Motorists are reminded to expect delays, travel at off-peak hours, and drive safely through the work area.
