Project Summary

Project Background / Description
Anoka County, in partnership with the Cities of Blaine and Lino Lakes, is developing a preliminary layout for Main Street (CSAH 14) at the intersection with Sunset Avenue NE (CR 53).  The project is in the preliminary development phase, and will include reconstruction of the intersection to a single lane roundabout, providing full access and enabling u-turns for right-in/right-out controlled access, which will improve the safety and mobility of all modes of transportation.  Construction is scheduled in Spring 2024.

Project Goals
Provided below are the project goals being considered during the design and construction phase of this project:

  • Safely accommodate all users including motor vehicles, pedestrians, and bicyclists;
  • Improve storm water management and treatment;
  • Reduce impacts and avoid, where appropriate, the natural resources and wetlands adjacent to the highway corridor;
  • Provide efficient mobility and access for all modes of travel; and
  • Develop a financially responsible design that minimizes right-of-way and environmental resource impacts.
