The ramp from I-35W southbound to northbound Highway 13 in Burnsville is closed after construction crews discovered bridge damage over the weekend.
Many morning commuters make their way to St. Paul using this route -- traffic backups were already underway at 6 a.m.
On Saturday, construction crews discovered the bridge was damaged and promptly closed the ramp from I-35W southbound to Highway 13. Following the tragic collapse of the 35W bridge in 2007, Minnesota Department of Transportation officials said they're being overly cautions when dealing with potential bridge buckles and bruises.
Bottom line: Pack your patience if you're headed through Burnsville via that route today.
