The study is reviewing I-494 and Highway 62 between the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport on the east and the I-494/Highway 62 interchange on the west. Both highways are being studied because improvements to either stretch of highway are likely to impact the adjacent parallel corridor.
The study will analyze adding MnPASS Express Lanes, auxiliary lanes, turn lanes, dynamic shoulders, modifying interchanges, and improving transit travel options and accessibility. This study is anticipated to be completed in late 2016.
