Hwy 120/Century Ave. between I-94 in Maplewood and I-694 in Oakdale is a six mile connector road for area residents, students, commuters and businesses. The pavement in this area is getting old and is scheduled to be repaired in a few years. At the same time, we are looking at other improvements that will help address safety issues and other concerns in this area. This study will identify issues, priorities and environmental concerns on this section of the highway. This proactive approach will allow us to develop a future vision for the needed transportation improvements while being mindful of the potential impacts to the community and environment.
