I-494 Reconstruction

I-494 Reconstruction


Project Challenge

A key section of I-494 from I-394 to Trunk Highway 5 in Minnetonka and
Eden Prairie has been expanded to add one travel lane in each direction for approximately eight miles. Interchanges at Highway 62 and Highway 7
were rebuilt to ease traffic flow, and 14 bridges were widened to
accommodate the new road configuration. In addition to roadway
reconstruction, the project included four miles of soundwall/noisewall construction and the creation of new storm water drainage ponds.
