Michael Baker International Named Lead Designer for Minnesota DOT's I-494: Airport to Hwy 169 First Construction Design-Build Project

MINNEAPOLIS, MN — Michael Baker International announces that the team led by C.S. McCrossan Construction, Inc., which includes Michael Baker International as the Lead Designer, has been selected by the Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) for the $377 million I-494: Airport to Hwy 169 First Construction Design-Build Project in Hennepin County, Minnesota.

The team will design and construct a tolled E-Z Pass HOV lane in both directions between East Bush Lake Road and I-35W, a reconstructed interchange at I-494 and I-35W, including a turbine ramp for the northbound I-35W to westbound I-494 movement, and a reconfiguration of the access at Nicollet, Portland, and 12th Avenues. The project scope also includes the construction of 12 new bridges, including a new pedestrian bridge, more than 30 retaining walls, noise walls, and new drainage infrastructure.

The project is part of a long-term vision by MnDOT that includes improvements to address current and future transportation issues on I-494. It aims to provide a transit advantage to increase the number of people who can be efficiently moved through the area; improve the reliability of the average rush-hour trip; improve safety; restore pavement to preserve infrastructure and provide a smoother ride; improve drainage systems to reduce localized flooding and reduce run-off into the Minnesota River while preserving existing bridges.
