Fans making their way to the Wild game tonight against the Blues, be advised: 35E between 94 and Hwy 36 is closed for construction. It may be a slight hassle, but please look ahead for another way into Saint Paul.
Here's more information from MNDOT:
MNDOT has alerted us of 35E road closure between 94 and Hwy 36 this week-end. Please read the details below and ensure your staff is aware, so they can plan for extra commuting time this week-end if they are working. This information will be shared on our facility social media sites to alert fans / guests as well.
WHEN: Friday, March 7, 10 p.m. - 5 a.m., Monday, March 10
WHERE: Both directions of I-35E between I-94 and Hwy 36 are scheduled to close (area ramps will begin closing at 9 p.m. Friday).
DETOUR: Motorists will be detoured to I-94 and I-694 to bypass the closure.
The closure is needed for removal of the Arlington Avenue and Wheelock Parkway bridges spanning I-35E, which will be replaced as part of the MnPASS project. The bridges will close at approximately 5 p.m., March 7, and remain closed through early May.
