From the Minnesota Department of Transportation • May 25, 2022

On Tuesday, May 31, maintenance work will begin on the I-535 Blatnik Bridge. This project consists of drainage system improvements, deck repairs, concrete repairs, painting, and sealing work. There will be single lane closures both northbound and southbound throughout the duration of the project; one lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained at all times. 

This project will help extend the life of the bridge until the Blatnik Bridge is replaced in 2028.
