High-fives all around for another leg of Hwy. 610: "State and local officials will hold a party Wednesday that's been nearly 50 years in the planning: They'll be celebrating completion of a new stretch of Hwy. 610, heading west from Brooklyn Park into Maple Grove. Plans from the 1960s called for 610 to connect U.S. Hwy. 10 in the north metro to Interstate Hwy. 94, a link intended to ease frustration for commuters and make the area more easily accessible. The newest extension brings the roadway 2.74 miles closer to the goal, and also has local officials seeing strong prospects for development."

[I went to the previous incarnation of the museum which was quite nice, and had a huge collection of cars. Would be nice to have one as good in Minnesota. - dml]
