There will be louder drilling at the new I-35W Bridge site next week as crews wrap up foundation work.
Crews will start drilling 69 foundation shafts for Abutment 5 and the 2nd Street Bridge on the north side of the project site, according to an update from Mn/DOT. There will be significant noise due to the higher elevation and use of three large air compressors.
Drilling is scheduled to start as soon as Jan. 9, and is expected to last for the next three or four weeks. Crews will be working 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
