MNDOT issues update on Twin Ports Interchange Project

MNDOT held virtual and in-person meetings today, to update travelers on the progress crews have been making.

“We are still on schedule for the fall of ’24 substantial completion,” said Pete Marthaler, the Project Manager of the Twin Ports Interchange Project. “Meaning that we will have all major routes open to traffic. Those routes being I-35, 53 and 535, with ultimate completion coming in the fall of ’25.”

The next change in traffic patterns for travelers to lookout for will come in mid-February, when a portion of 20th Avenue West between West 3rd Street and North 19th Avenue West will close while crews begin the demolition of the bridge above it.

MNDOT also said that travelers can expect intermittent closures of I-35 during nights and weekends beginning in April.

These closures are necessary to maintain the safety of motorists, as well as the safety of crews working on the project according to MNDOT.
