Construction on Interstate 35 Medford roundabouts will close highway ramps

Motorists traveling to Medford, Minnesota, or the Medford Outlet Center on Interstate 35 north of Owatonna will encounter ramp closures and detours beginning Monday, June 9 as construction begins on the roundabouts, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

Exit 48 will be closed during the duration of the six-week, $833,000 project, which will replace the two roundabouts. Traffic will be able to access the businesses to the west of I-35 and the city to the east of I-35 via detours at exit 45 at Clinton Falls. To reach businesses on the west side of I-35, motorists should take Steele County Road 9 west to Steele County Road 23 north. To reach the city of Medford and its businesses, motorists should take Steele County Road 9 east to Steele County Road 45 north.

The project is expected to be complete by July 18.

To learn more or get a map of the detour, go to the MnDOT project page at

MnDOT urges motorists to always be attentive, drive with caution, slow down in work zones and never enter a road blocked with barriers or cones.
