Coon Rapids Boulevard (CSAH 1) and Blackfoot Street Signal Replacement

Anoka County, in partnership with the City of Coon Rapids, is developing a preliminary layout for replacing and updating the existing signal system at CSAH 1 (Coon Rapids Boulevard) and Blackfoot Street.  Construction is tentatively scheduled for 2022.

Foley Boulevard (CSAH 11) - BNSF Railway Grade Separation

Foley Boulevard, from East River Road to Coon Rapids Boulevard, will be reconstructed to a four-lane divided highway over the BNSF railroad tracks.  Additional pedestrian and traffic safety improvements will also be made during this construction.

Below is a time-lapse video of Foley Boulevard RR bridge project from July 2, 2021 - November 21, 2022.

109th Avenue (CSAH 12) Pedestrian Ramp Improvement Project

Four pedestrian ramp pairs, at the intersections of 109th Avenue (CSAH 12) with 6th Street, Terrace Road, Quincy Boulevard, and Buchanan Street, will be reconstructed in partnership with MnDOT. These projects will increase the walkability of the area, and also provide contracting opportunities to local small businesses for the construction. Each intersection will be redone individually as a small business contract. Construction is anticipated for Summer 2022.

125th Avenue (CSAH 14) Reconstruction - Harpers Street to Lexington Avenue (CSAH 17)

CSAH 14 will be upgraded from a two-lane rural section to a four-lane divided urban section from Harpers Street to CSAH 17.  The project will incorporate a multi-use bituminous trail within the corridor, along with a traffic control signal at the intersection of North Lake Boulevard and Legacy Creek Parkway.

Lexington Avenue (CSAH 17) Turn Lane Additions - Pheasant Ridge Drive to 112th Avenue

Anoka County received a Local Road Improvement Program grant to fund a portion of the realignment and reconstruction of West Freeway Drive (CSAH 54), north of Lake Drive (CSAH 23), which is a City roadway under the jurisdiction of City of Columbus.  In addition, the City of Columbus has received funding thru the State Park Road Account to fund road improvements for the access into onto the DNR’s Lamprey Pass Wildlife Management Area (LPWMA).  Recent County and MnDOT geometric improvements on Lake Drive and TH 97 have changed the existing West Freeway Drive access to a right-in/right-out only.
