Roseville, Minn. – The Minnesota Department of Transportation invites interested individuals to attend a public meeting on Tuesday, April 18, to review and submit formal comments on an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) scoping document. The scoping document details proposed improvements to Highway 252 and Interstate 94 between Highway 610 in Brooklyn Park and 4th Street N in Minneapolis. The public meeting will be held in-person at Discover Church (1400 81st Avenue N, Brooklyn Park, MN 55444) between 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. The public can also register to attend a virtual public meeting that covers the same content on the Hwy 252 and I-94 website. The virtual public meeting will be held Thursday, April 27 from 6 to 7:30 p.m.  

The period for the public to submit comments on the scoping document (part of a process that evaluates the potential impacts of a project) will last 60 days, from March 21 to May 19. People can submit their comments on the project website. Hard copies of the document will be posted at the following locations:
