List of Summer 2024 road construction projects in Minnesota

The Minnesota Department of Transportation outlined a busy summer construction season on Tuesday.

MnDOT says it has 200 construction projects planned statewide to improve roads, bridges, and other transportation infrastructure.

The biggest project, which has been ongoing, will be work on I-494. The project is entering year two of a four-year timeline. Projects are also set for I-94, Hwy 36, and I-35.

Other significant projects will affect drivers heading to Duluth this summer. Crews will complete bridge work on I-35 between the Twin Cities and Duluth, repair the Atkinson bridge over Carlton County Road 61, and resurface pavement near Hinckley. Roadwork will also continue on I-35 in Duluth.
