Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - The Rochester Public Works Department is inviting the public to an open house Thursday to view the plans involving a major upgrade of 55th Street in the North Park neighborhood area.
The project calls for a reconstruction of the busy roadway between 50th Ave NW to West Circle Drive. It includes a new alignment between Fairway Drive and West Circle Drive.

Motorists have been dealing with traffic issues on that stretch of 55th Street for years. The project is scheduled for construction through September 2017 and will have a major impact on those who travel this corridor.

The open house will be held from 4:30 p.m.– 6:30 p.m. at Christ Community Church.
