The right lane of both directions of I-35E between I-94 and Maryland Avenue will be closed Wednesday for a few hours. The southbound lane will close at 7 p.m. and the northbound lane will close starting at 8 p.m. Access to ramps in the area will be maintained during the lane closures. The lanes should be open in time for Thursday's morning rush hour.
