** - In 2005, MN 65 was eliminated from the segment between 10th St and 3rd Ave/Washington Ave in downtown Minneapolis.  The freeway spur from I-35W to 10th St officially remains part of MN 65.  MN 65 will possibly be further truncated to I-694 sometime in the next 5 years.

About a year later, the MN 65 shield was removed, as MN 65 was eliminated through downtown Minneapolis in 2005.  The freeway stub from I-35W to 10th St is still officially part of MN 65, but as the lack of signage indicates it is now a hidden route segment.  Photo by Glenn Olson, taken in July, 2005.
