The Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce understands road construction, like that on I-94 between Saint Paul and Maplewood, can impact commute times and the number of customers who walk through your door. You worry that long-term road improvements come with short-term frustrations for your colleagues, customers, vendors, and suppliers.
The Minnesota Department of Transportation (MnDOT) is aware of these concerns, as well. Back in April 2017, MnDOT began using innovative technology called a moveable barrier to ease traffic build-up and to help mitigate any disruptions that you may otherwise experience during construction.
Meet the moveable barrier.
Watch this short video to see how the moveable barrier works. It adds a lane when and where it’s most needed. That’s good for business because it will save drivers time on the road and make businesses more accessible.

Staying informed about construction will help you better communicate with all of the people that help make your business possible, especially customers and delivery drivers who are not familiar with the area and those who have come a long way to reach you.
