BLOOMINGTON -- Starting next month give yourself an extra hour to get to the airport. That's what the Minnesota Department of Transportation is recommending as they prepare for a major road construction project near the Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport from April through October.

The reconstruction project for Highway 5 is scheduled to begin after spring break and be completed before MEA weekend.
