The interchange at I-694 and Rice Street adjacent to the communities of Shoreview, Little Canada and Vadnais Heights is being reconstructed in 2019 and 2020.

Once complete, this multi-year, $22.9 million project will:

  • Improve traffic flow along Rice Street through the interchange area.
  • Prioritize pedestrians and bicyclists to ensure all users can travel safety through the interchange.
  • Improve economic development opportunities in underutilized sites near the area.
