Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - For the first time since spring last year, all the traffic lanes in front of the Mayo Civic Center are getting back to normal.

The lanes on the west side of the downtown Rochester building were affected by the expansion project that is scheduled to be wrapped up in the spring.

In fact, traffic lanes between Center St on the north and 4th St on the south were affected.

The city Public Works Dept says new pavement markings will be installed once the temperatures rise.

The east side of Civic Center Drive will have a drop off area for Mayo Civic Center patrons. A total of six doors will be accessible for patrons using the drop off lane.

The $84 million expansion which included a large ballroom will give the center more than 200,000 square feet of space for meetings, conferences and other events.

The city is shooting for an April 1st opening.
