Delays loom as municipal consent falters for Rice/I-694 interchange project


courtesy of Ramsey County • With long-sought funding finally in place, Ramsey County is set to rebuild the Rice Street bridge and interchange at Interstate 694, with construction work starting as soon as the end of the year.
