View full-size mapWe are studying the I-35/I-90 interchange corridor near Albert Lea. We are studying how best to improve safety and address aging bridges to provide a smoother, more effective travel experience for all who use it.

The I-35/I-90 interchange is an important crossroads for freight traffic and travelers. The eastbound and westbound bridges on I-90 were built in 1968 and need improvements soon. We plan to replace the two I-90 bridges and make some ramp improvements starting in 2030. We currently only have funding identified for this work.

The corridor study may identify other improvements, which will help in the pursuit of other funding opportunities or provide important information for future projects.
