About this project
This project removed the over 120 year old Bassett Creek tunnel that was no longer in use; a new tunnel was constructed to replace the old one in 2018. The project also replaced aging pavement on Hwy 55, which achieves MnDOT’s goal of maintaining a safe, efficient, accessible and reliable multimodal transportation system that connects people.
