I-694/Rice Street interchange construction complete, fully open to traffic
Construction of the I-694/Rice Street interchange is now substantially complete. All lanes on Rice Street are open to traffic, and all ramps to and from I-694 are open. Final site cleanup and other minor work will occur the week of Aug. 31.
Reconstruction began in March 2019 and involved:
- Rebuilding the Rice Street bridge over I-694.
- Constructing a series of three roundabouts on Rice Street.
- Building new entrance and exit ramps for I-694, including two new bridges over the interstate.
The new design improves traffic flow throughout the interchange and creates better pedestrian and bike facilities along Rice Street.
