The Capitol Interchange, where I-94 and I-35E meet in downtown St. Paul and the freeways run together, is one of the busiest in the state and prone to congestion.

Motorists in downtown Minneapolis have been dealing with construction on Interstates 94 and 35W for the past three years. Now, drivers in St. Paul get to feel their pain.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation will be working on I-94 between Western Avenue and Mounds Boulevard and on I-35E between I-94 and University Avenue for the next two summers. This week, the agency will hold two online open houses to lay out the project, from noon to 1 p.m. Tuesday and 4 to 5 p.m. Wednesday. Registration at is required.

"Construction won't be quite as extensive as in Minneapolis," said MnDOT spokesman Kent Barnard. "But it can be as easily disruptive."
