Summary of work

  • Add a third general purpose lane in each direction between Rice Street and Lexington Avenue.
  • Reconstruct I-694 between Rice Street and Lexington Avenue.
  • Rebuild interstate ramps at Lexington Avenue, Victoria Street and Rice Street.
  • Open the right lane of the bridge from northbound I-35E to westbound I-694. The right lane will become an exit-only lane to Rice Street.
  • Improve storm water drainage throughout the corridor.

A noise study was recently done in the area. The results of the study show that if a noise barrier was constructed south of I-694 and west of Rice Street the noise from traffic would be reduced for some property owners and residents. Residents and property owners who would have a reduction in noise of at least 5 decibels will be voting on whether a noise barrier should or shouldn't be constructed as part of this project.
