The closure of northbound lanes will also close Exit 220/Carlton County Road 6 and a detour will be posted, MnDOT said.
DULUTH — Interstate 35 northbound traffic near Barnum will switch over to the southbound lanes in the evening on Thursday, July 7, according to a news release from the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Traffic will travel in a head-to-head configuration for approximately 70 days, the news release said. 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, according to the news release.
