Switch is on in at 35 in Barnum

Northbound Interstate 35 traffic near Barnum was switched over to the southbound lanes this week. Traffic will be traveling in a head-to-head configuration in the area 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 be resurfaced with a replacement of the existing concrete unbonded overlay. The project is expected to be complete in early October. Motorists should expect delays during peak travel times....
