Lake Avenue I-35 Exit Will Close Thursday
DULUTH, Minn. – The southbound I-35 ramp 256B to Lake Avenue and 5th Avenue West in Duluth will close at 9 a.m., Thursday March 16 to allow maintenance crews to clean plugged freeway drains.
Southbound motorists traveling to downtown and Canal Park should take alternate routes.
During the closure, MnDOT and the City of Duluth maintenance crews will clean the drains beneath the tunnels to reduce the chance of water backups on the freeway and ramps.
Ramps will reopen as soon as work is complete.
