ROSEVILLE, Minn. — Please join the Minnesota Department of Transportation for an open house to outline upcoming construction of Reduced Conflict Intersections in the cities of Ham Lake and East Bethel.

Residents and business owners are encouraged to attend to learn more about the project.

Work is scheduled to begin this July at the intersection of Hwy 65 and 187th Avenue in East Bethel.
