MnDOT's 2024 to-do list includes nearly 200 road and bridge projects

The recent cool and snowy weather has slowed the start of road construction season, but in the coming days motorists will start feeling the pinch as the Minnesota Department of Transportation gets started on slate of new projects across the state, and resumes others it didn't finish last year.

Lane closures will kick in Thursday on I-94 between Oakdale and Woodbury in the east metro. Ramps from eastbound I-494 to northbound Hwy. 100 and southbound Hwy. 100 to eastbound I-494 will shut down Sunday as the major rebuild of I-494 through Edina, Richfield and Bloomington resumes.

They are some of the first places drivers will see "Road Closed" signs as MnDOT plans to carry out 193 road and bridge projects over the next six months. The agency is also conducting 54 others to improve conditions at railroad crossings, airports and water ports and improve transit infrastructure. The total cost is $1.6 billion.
