Decreasing Delays and Increasing Safety
With a New Interchange

Award-Winning Project

Challenge

Growth and development introduced traffic congestion, major delays and safety concerns along a major traffic artery in Maplewood, Minnesota.

Solution

The SEH team designed a tight diamond interchange and bridge to help alleviate congestion and improve safety. The initial design phase was condensed to five months in order to accelerate the project's bid date to take advantage of available federal funds.
