Community members who are interested in attending should RSVP to Tess.Nejedlo@hdrinc.com by Monday, Oct. 21.

This event is part of the three-year I-35W Minnesota River Bridge construction project in Bloomington and Burnsville. The work includes reconstructing the I-35W and the 106th Street bridges spanning the Minnesota River, replacing pavement from Cliff Road to 106th Street and constructing a trail between Black Dog Road and Lyndale Avenue. Work is expected to be completed in fall 2021.
