Crosstown Construction Scheduled For June

After being pushed back yet again last year, a bid has finally been accepted by the Minnesota Department of Transportation to start the reconstruction of the Crosstown Commons area where highways 35 and 62 meet, one of the most notorious bottleneck spots in the metro area, according to articles in the Star Tribune and the Pioneer Press.

The atricle in the Star Tribune is locally reported, and goes in depth to how notorious the spot has been for accidents and large traffic jams in the past. It includes a map rendering what the new spot will look like after four summers of construction.

The article in the Pioneer Press was written by the Associated Press, and is just a brief overview of the new project, not quoting any sources.

The project is scheduled to be complete in fall 2010
