Interstate 35W new bridge - compliments Ames ConstructionNovember 2021 - photo Ames Construction

The 60-year-old bridge spanning the Minnesota River has been replaced with a twin-structure crossing that provides long-needed added traffic capacity while also eliminating flooding issues at the approaches. Crews worked through bitter winter weather in order to complete initial work in 2019, but significantly high spring and early summer floods complicated marine-based foundation work for the four river piers. Additional access roads and equipment pads were installed to keep work going during minor flood events.

Improvements to Cliff Road at 35WRoundabout replaces difficult intersection

Officials and contractors cut the ribbon Oct. 28 on a new roundabout at Interstate 35W and Cliff Road in Burnsville.


Officials herald improvement at I-35W ramp and Cliff

The notoriously difficult intersection at the Interstate 35W southbound ramp and Cliff Road West in Burnsville has been replaced by a roundabout.

Scheduled to open the evening of Oct. 28, the roundabout will improve traffic flow for exiting vehicles and decrease backups of heavy commercial trucks exiting the industrial area to the west.

The roundabout replaces a T-intersection controlled by a stop sign at Cliff Road West. The roundabout is 200 feet south of the old intersection.

City and Dakota County officials and contractors held a ribbon-cutting the afternoon of Oct. 28 to mark a project that Mayor Elizabeth Kautz said was first envisioned in 1999.
