The existing Highway 96 bridge over Interstate 35W had structural deficiencies and Ramsey County needed to replace it. In addition, mobility and safety had to be improved to accommodate the development of a 430-acre former military site adjacent to the road.
The project team developed a diverging diamond interchange on a new bridge that would accommodate local and regional travelers, commuters, bicyclists and pedestrians, while allowing access to the large development.
