ROSEVILLE, Minn. – The public is invited to attend an open house to learn about repairs and improvements the Minnesota Department of Transportation will make to Interstate 94 this year.

The open house is from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, at the Minneapolis Park Board Building, 2117 West River Parkway in Minneapolis.

The project will make repairs and improvements on a nine-mile stretch from Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis to Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center. It is scheduled to start in late March and finish in July of 2018.
