Minnesota Department of Transportation officials and local leaders have scheduled a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Friday morning to celebrate the completion of the Nine Mile Creek Causeway project on Highway 169.
An opening date is expected to be announced at the event.
A MnDOT release said Edina Mayor Jim Hovland, Hopkins Mayor Molly Cummings and Minnetonka City Councilor Patty Acomb are all scheduled to speak at the event, scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. on the northbound side of the causeway near the exit ramp from Bren Road in Edina.
Work on the project, as well as other improvements to Hwy. 169, began Jan. 23. The project cost $64 million.
In August, MnDOT offered a $500,000 incentive to Ames Construction to accelerate completion of the Highway 169 project in an effort to have it completed by Sept. 26.
