Eastbound I-494/southbound Hwy 169 to open late on Oct. 5

 

ROSEVILLE, Minn. – After minor delays motorists will experience a traffic change at the Highway 169/Interstate 494 interchange in Bloomington, Edina and Eden Prairie as the new flyover ramp from eastbound Interstate 494 to southbound Highway 169 opens by 10 p.m. Oct. 5, weather permitting.

 

The Highway 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 Highway 169/I-494 interchange reconstruction project, call the Highway 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/.
