Elk Run interchange opens
The new Elk Run diverging diamond interchange is now open to motorists near Pine Island, according to the Minnesota Department of Transportation.
Access to 520th and 120th streets will now only be available through the interchange and new frontage road system.
Elk Run is one of the first diverging diamond interchanges in the state. Its design is more cost effective and safer for high traffic volumes than traditional interchanges, MnDOT said.
