I-35 construction near Barnum traffic switch July 7

DULUTH, Minn. –  On the evening of Thursday, July 7, I-35 northbound traffic near Barnum will be switched over to the southbound lanes. Traffic will be traveling in a head-to-head configuration for approximately 70 days. The closure of northbound lanes will also close Exit 220/Carlton County Road 6 and a detour will be posted.

The northbound lanes will resurface the highway and replace the existing concrete unbonded overlay. The project is expected to be complete in early October. Motorists should expect delays during peak travel times on weekends.
