Interstate 35W

Interstate 35W is one of two paths that Interstate 35 uses to go through the Minneapolis-St. Paul Metro Area. Just line in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Interstate 35 splits into I-35E & I-35W. When the AASHO started to remove the suffix routes from the interstate system, these were allowed to remain.

This highway is known for a tragic rush hour bridge collapse in 2007. A new Mississippi River crossing opened in 2008, three months ahead of schedule.

While in Minnesota, I-35W is multi-plexed.

I-35W is multi-plexed with...

...Minnesota State Route 62, at Richfield.
