After a busy 2015 season on I-494, road construction will be starting up soon for the 2016.

Before the construction season starts, representatives from the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) are hosting a public business meeting/open house on 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Monday, March 21 at the Plymouth Library located at 15700 36th Avenue North, Plymouth.

While specific details about dates of lane and ramp closures have not yet been finalized, it is anticipated lane and ramp closures will occur throughout the project from mid-April to late fall 2016, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.

During the project, the impacts include I-494 traffic (between I-394 and I-94/I-694) shifting to the southside of I-494 for work on northbound I-494.

“There will be two lane of traffic open in each direction on I-494 through the project area,” MnDOT stated on their website.

There are several components being addressed during the I-494 project such as:

  • Installing a third lane between Highway 55 and East Fish Lake Road
  • Maintenance on several I-494 ramps
  • Repair and reconstruct pavement on I-494 between I-394 and the Fish Lake Interchange
  • Replacing bridges along I-494 (County Road 47, Schmidt Lake Road, Canadian Pacific Railway
  • Adding storm water ponds and noise barriers 

More information about the I-494 project can be found on the Minnesota Department of Transportation website here: http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/i494plymouth/index.html
