Ramsey Gateway Project
Noise Barrier Engagement
Per federal requirements, a noise barrier analysis is being completed and the project team anticipates noise barriers to meet thresholds in a few locations (view draft locations here). A virtual office hour was held on August 17 to discuss and answer questions on the barrier process and potential locations. If you were unable to attend, you can review the presentation in both English and Spanish . It is anticipated that the noise barrier analysis will be finalized, and a formal public meeting will be held in October 2021.
Project Funding Status
After recently receiving $15 million in Coronavirus Relief/Response funds, the Ramsey Gateway Project is now fully funded! See more details on the Planning, Analysis and Design page.
Public Engagement Summaries Available
Thank you to all who participated in the May 2021 virtual open house and the 4f Public Comment Period, regarding anticipated impacts to the Mississippi West Regional Park. Public summaries can always be found on the Stakeholder Involvement page.

Anoka County, MnDOT, and the City of Ramsey developed a locally supported vision of the Highway 10 corridor through Ramsey as part of the Ramsey Gateway Highway 10 Study. The Ramsey Gateway Highway 10 Project continues that vision with design of two grade-separated interchanges at Ramsey Boulevard and Sunfish Lake Boulevard that will replace existing signalized intersections. Grade separation of the BNSF Railway and a new frontage road between Ramsey Boulevard and Sunfish Lake Boulevard are also part of this design project.
Project goals include:
- Safely accommodating all users including motor vehicles, freight, rail, transit, pedestrians, and bicyclists
- Providing efficient mobility and access for all modes of travel
- Developing a financially responsible design that minimizes right-of-way and environmental resource impacts
- Securing additional funding for full project construction
We are currently in the second phase of the project, which is preliminary design. For an overview of the project development process, see the graphic below.
