Open house planned April 6 for I-94 construction from Minneapolis to Brooklyn Center

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

The open house is from 6-8 p.m. Thursday, April 6, at the Minneapolis Urban League, 2100 Plymouth Avenue North in Minneapolis. MnDOT and the Minneapolis Urban League are sponsoring the event.

The project, which started March 20, is making repairs and improvements on a nine-mile stretch from Nicollet Avenue in Minneapolis to Shingle Creek Parkway in Brooklyn Center. It is scheduled to finish in July of 2018.

It features freeway resurfacing, bridge and ramp repairs and added guardrail and lighting. It will require the freeway to be reduced to two lanes during the project and for lanes to shift to one side of the Lowry Tunnel for about three months.

Representatives from the Minnesota Department of Transportation and project staff will be available to answer questions at the open house. MnDOT will also have staff to talk about job and internship opportunities within the agency and other MnDOT projects. Opportunities to learn about alternatives to driving will be available.
