Expect delays on I-35 south of Duluth during summer travel

Travelers on Interstate 35 between the Twin Cities and Duluth should expect traffic delays this summer due to several construction projects.

Drivers will encounter single-lane, head-to-head traffic near Hinckley through October and just south of Highway 210 in Carlton County until the end of August.

Additionally, in the city of Duluth, intermittent lane closures are expected for bridge repair work at 40th Avenue West, Twin Ports Interchange work, and pavement repairs between Lake Avenue and 21st Avenue East.

Motorists should expect delays, especially during peak weekend travel hours. Delays could be significant when heading northbound on Friday afternoons and southbound on Sundays. Traveling during off-peak hours is recommended to avoid backups.
