A Look at Visual Concepts of New Twin Ports Interchange

Updated: June 24, 2019 05:55 PM

Work continues on the major reconstruction of the Twin Ports Interchange, also known as the Can of Worms. On Monday, MnDOT hosted more public meetings about the project at Clyde Iron Works.


The big reveal on Monday was about the visual quality exhibits, which show the look and feel of the interchange, both on Highway 53 and the mainline Interstate.

"The visual quality advisory committee has selected and recommended these looks. As we walked through Lincoln Park, the group saw the brick and the old buildings. And also something important to them was the rocks to the docks and the skyline to the shoreline.  You'll see the taconite texture and the waviness of Miller Creek," explained Roberta Dwyer, project manager.

They also have a 3-D model of the interchange.

You'll be able to check out the visual exhibits and comment on them starting on Tuesday:
