The street fair, complete with food, games, music, shopping and a walking tour of the improvements, was a way for the community to celebrate the new life MnDOT brought to the area. “A lot of people that come from North Minneapolis, Brooklyn Center, from that area down there, they come a tell us ‘oh we don’t come because of traffic’ they just avoid it,” Elizabeth Cruz, Owner of Fuentes de Sodas Vikky, said.
The ramp from I-35W northbound to I-94 westbound is open again, too, and a transit station at Lake and 31st street will open later this year.
The completed project includes 11 new bridges, new ramps that increase access to Lake Street businesses, concrete repair to the 50-year-old interstate, a new E-ZPass lane and more access for pedestrians and bicyclists alike.
