New flyover ramp opening at Hwy 169/I-494 postponed

 

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The Oct. 1 opening of the new flyover bridge from westbound I-494 to southbound Hwy 169 has been postponed in order to coordinate its opening with that of the ramp from eastbound I-494 to southbound Hwy 169. 

 

Both of the ramps will open late on Oct. 2 or Oct. 3. The exact timing of the openings will be made available as the timeframe is finalized.

 

The Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project includes turning the current expressway into a freeway by rebuilding the interchange with six ramps instead of eight. The performance-based design removes traffic signals, reduces congestion and improves safety.

 

For more information on the Hwy 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project, call the Hwy 169/I-494 Project hotline at 1-877-563-4768, e-mail Hwy169-I494@rranow.com or visit http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/169/.
