Open house for County Road 9 bridge over I-494 set for Jan. 16
The City of Plymouth and Hennepin County will host an open house 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 16 at Plymouth City Hall, 3400 Plymouth Blvd., to share draft plans for replacing the County Road 9 (Rockford Road) bridge over Interstate 494 and improving adjacent intersections, as well as associated traffic detours and construction schedules.
Staff from the city, county and Minnesota Department of Transportation will be on hand at the open house to hear comments, take suggestions and answer questions. The feedback from the public will help the agencies further refine construction activities and schedules.
Though the bridge is not city-owned infrastructure, the city has teamed up with Hennepin County and MnDOT to complete this project.
The existing bridge was built in 1965 without dedicated left turn lanes – and the area has seen considerable development over the past five decades. This interchange is the site of daily congestion and has averaged 33 crashes per year over the past five years. The proposed project would improve public safety and reduce congestion by constructing a wider bridge that can accommodate dedicated left turn lanes onto I-494.
