Hwy 100 Reconstruction Project Visual Aesthetics Open House scheduled for June 25

Information about noise walls, bridges, lighting, landscaping and public art will be available

Roseville, Minn. - Area residents, motorists and the business community are invited to learn about the visual aesthetics of the Hwy 100 Reconstruction Project between 36th Street W and 25 ½ Street in St. Louis Park at an upcoming public open house.

The informal open house will be held Tuesday, June 25 from 5 to 7 p.m. in the St. Louis Park City Hall Council Chambers, 5005 Minnetonka Blvd.

In 2012, the City of St. Louis Park helped establish a Visual Quality Advisory Committee (VQAC) comprised of community members, city and county representatives and community business leaders. The VQAC is the MnDOT project team’s direct link to suggestions, recommendations, concerns and input from the community.

Representatives from MnDOT and their consultant, the City of St. Louis Park, and the VQAC will be at the open house to discuss the visual characteristics for elements such as the noise walls, bridges, lighting, landscaping and public art that have been established by the committee.

The purpose of the reconstruction project is to improve interchange safety at Hwy 7 and County Road 5, and to improve the traffic operations of Hwy 100 by increasing safety and mobility.
