ROCHESTER, Minn. (FOX 47) -
It's been about two years in the making and Thursday one of Rochester's biggest construction projects is coming to an end. The 55th Street Northwest extension project will officially open with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Ground didn't break until about two years ago, but planning for the extension has taken more than 25 years.
The ribbon-cutting for the extension will take place at 10 a.m. Thursday, but drivers won't have access to it until later in the day.
The new extension will feature a brand new four-lane road and a bridge near Essex Park that will take you east to the Shopko area.
Construction on the $33 million project began in the fall of 2015 and was funded by local dollars.
