Minnesota Department of Transportation crews will repair the pavement along 4 miles of Hwy. 65 in Fridley and Spring Lake Park this summer.

Construction will start in June and stretch from 53rd Avenue NE., in Fridley to County Road 10 in Spring Lake Park.

Crews will also make pedestrian and bus stop safety improvements, drainage improvements, and guardrail replacements and upgrades. The project will cost $9.3 million.

MnDOT will host two open houses on the projects. The first, aimed at businesses, will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on April 30 at the Fridley Community Center, Room 109, 6085 7th St. NE. The second, for the public, will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. on May 21, also at the Community Center.
