Highway 5 road construction starts
Maybe you’ve noticed new road construction around the airport? The area of Hwy 5 from 34th Avenue to the Highway 55 and TH62 interchange will be under construction from April through the fall. The project will resurface Highway 5 with new concrete and repair 12 bridges and ramps. When complete, motorists will have a smoother ride on Highway 5 and I-494.
During construction, allow extra time when traveling on Highway 5. MnDOT recommends allowing an extra hour to get to the airport.
