Freeway Drive Bridge over Interstate 35W in Anoka County is closed

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The West Freeway Drive/County Road 54 bridge over Interstate 35W in Columbus is currently closed until further notice for concrete deck repairs. Motorists should use alternate routes in the area. 

The I-35 North Metro Split project includes resurfacing the existing pavement from the I-35W/I-35E split to Highway 8; replacing the Highway 97 bridge with a diverging diamond interchange; replacing the northbound I-35W bridge over I-35E and the westbound Highway 8 bridge over I-35. The project will provide a better ride quality, as well as improve safety and traffic flow at the Highway 97 interchange. Additional information is available at mndot.gov/metro/projects/i35northmetrosplit.
