The northbound Hwy 13 ramp off of southbound Interstate 35W in Burnsville has been closed after damage was detected this weekend as crews were painting the bridge spanning I-35W as part of routine maintenance.

In addition, the right lane on the bridge is closed on northbound Highway 13 at I-35W, MnDOT officials say.
The closure to the ramp is necessary for inspectors to assess the damage and determine repairs.  MnDOT will reopen the lane when the repair work is complete.
