ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) — A unique interchange, that's been two years in the making, is finally expected to open near St. Cloud.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation said the $10 million project opening Thursday is the second 'diverging diamond' interchange in Minnesota, but the first to use a traffic signal system.

The diamond-shaped interchange has motorists cross in front of oncoming traffic that is stopped to their right. Pedestrians and bicyclists travel down a bridge in the center of the interchange. The St. Cloud Times (http://on.sctimes.com/174yHLM ) says the new interchange will ease traffic in one of city's fastest growing areas.

The project was constructed by MnDOT in partnership with Stearns County, Sartell and St. Cloud.
