ROSEVILLE, Minn. – Travelers who use the Interstate 694 Corridor between I-35E and I-35W can take a sneak peak at the future roadway in a three-minute animation created by the Minnesota Department of Transportation. The aerial view of the project area starts just east of Victoria Street in Shoreview and moves westward before ending at Ramsey County Road H in Mounds View.


Along the way, features of the project are highlighted and explained.

The I-694 North Central Projects animation is available on the project website at: and on YouTube at

Work on the first of eight projects along the I-694 Corridor in Arden Hills and Shoreview began in September of 2011.  The long-awaited projects include new bridges, pavement and reconfiguration of the roadways between Victoria Street and I-694.  When all projects are completed at the end of the 2016 construction season, they will bring congestion relief, improved mobility and increased safety to the North Central area.
