Major Road Construction 2007
Summed up by: Rachele Cermak
Minnesota Department of Transportation announced Thursday that 16 of the 36 metro road construction projects will cause major traffic delays in the summer. In total the projects will cost about $1.5 million, $1 million dedicated to the metro area.
MnDOT mentioned multiple busy metro areas for construction. The Crosstown will be reconstructed by the common areas of Interstate 35W and Highway 62. The signal lights will be removed on Highway 36 by White Bear Avenue to Century Avenue. The I-694/I-35E project will be another area of slow going as MnDOT tries to â€śUnweave the Weave.â€?
