it's probably already obsolete. (i.e. 394 east between 169 and downtown. obsolete before it even opened.)

I was actually getting used to taking Portland Ave when I wanted to go south. This is very welcome news.

I rather will miss the "life flashing before my eyes" white knuckle terror I enjoyed every time I went into the 35W/62 merges over the years.

For those of us commuting daily between the south metro and downtown mpls for work this construction project seemed to go smoothly over the past 2 years. When the project first started, I thought my commute was going to be awful...The companies involved have done an excellant job in their attempt to keep traffic flowing. Thanks!

Very welcome change...Now let's fix the 169 and 494 interchange. 5 mile back-ups everyday for the last 10 years has grown tiresome! :)

This is fantastic news. I am very impressed with all the changes they have made this far. Traffic congestion is way down traveling 62 eastbound where it splits to 35W North and South. Great job!

I am grateful to the men and women who put their lives on the line working on that crazy stretch of road with very impatient, confused and sometimes just plain rude drivers over the past few years. Your hard work is greatly appreciated. From the bottom of my treads, thank you.
