Get ready for some major traffic trouble Monday. That’s when a five-month road project begins on Interstate 694 — one of the busiest roadways in the north metro.
Expect delays in both directions as I-35E in Burnsville will be reduced to a single lane as crews repair concrete pavement, MnDOT said. The work is between the I-35/35W/35E split and Cedar Avenue. One-lane traffic begins at midnight on Friday, June 14, and won’t open back up until mid-July.
The Minnesota State Capitol is about to get a new neighbor for the first time in decades. Construction begins next year on a new, $89.5 million Senate Office Building located directly behind the Capitol.

Demolition began on the Hastings Bridge this Wednesday, as motorists in the Twin Cities bid farewell to “Old Blue.” Crews started tearing down the landmark bridge at 7 a.m. The demolition crews will begin by removing the decking on the downtown side.
Tuesday a different kind of construction project gets underway. It’s one that aims to create 2,000 new jobs in the Twin Cities. Later Tuesday morning, city officials in Eagan will be officially breaking ground on a new outlet mall. Officials said the complex will cost $100 million to build.
A number of roads will be closing later this week as construction crews begin working on resurfacing projects around the Twin Cities. MnDOT says that the first of eight week’s worth of delays and detours will affect motorists using Highway 169.
The new Hawaiian monk seals at the Minnesota Zoo will have to wait. Officials at the zoo in Apple Valley wanted to renovate a million-gallon tank in Discovery Bay to house the seals. The zoo needs another $1 million to finish that work before the seals can move in.
One person’s investment is another person’s traffic jam, which is at least the way Minneapolis is looking at it.
Minnesota and Wisconsin transportation officials have scheduled a groundbreaking ceremony for the new St. Croix bridge project connecting the two states. The ceremony will be held May 28 at Lowell Park in Stillwater. Elected officials from both states are expected to speak.
