Interstate 35 Road Resurfacing Project Underway

Interstate 35 Road Resurfacing project in Chisago County.  I’m emailing today to provide nearby communities a project update and to also ask for your assistance on getting the word out about the 2019 construction.


An eight-mile section of I-35 between the City of Harris and the Chisago/Pine County line will undergo concrete pavement work beginning April 2019.  The project work will also include replacing cable median barriers, installing rumble strips and updating drainage and lighting.  The improvements will enhance safety, improve traffic flow and provide a smoother riding surface. I’ve attached an I-35 project fact sheet outlining the work for your convenience.


During the construction, I-35 will be restricted to a single lane of traffic in each direction with construction occurring in two stages (see attached fact sheet for anticipated schedule).


The Rush City interchange ramp access will be maintained in both directions with two exceptions.  In June 2019, crews anticipate a 2-4 week closure to reconstruct the southbound exit and entrance ramps.  Additionally, crews anticipate closing the northbound exit and entrance ramps for 2-4 weeks in September 2019 for reconstruction. Detour signage will be posted during the ramp closures. The project is expected to be complete by fall 2019, weather permitting.


Please encourage your employees and residents to stay up-to-date on specific closure dates and traffic impacts by signing up for email updates at the project website:


If you have print or online newsletters and/or a utility bill mailing, please consider including information regarding this construction project.  If you need a short article, I’d be glad to assist.

Thank you for your cooperation and assistance during this much needed work.
