CSAH 2 (40th Avenue NE)
from TH 65 to Circle Terrace Blvd NE
Seven pedestrian ramp pairs will be reconstructed along 109th Ave NE in partnership with MnDOT. These projects will increase the walkability of the area and give opportunities to local small businesses for the construction. Construction is planned to begin in July 2021, with each intersection being redone individually.
Birch Street will be reconstructed to improve mobility and safety between Hokah Drive and West Shadow Lake Drive. Improvements include constructing two new roundabouts and a center median to divide directional traffic.
Bunker Lake Boulevard improvements will better serve the community over the next four years by keeping this road safe for area residents, businesses, and commuters. Changes to Bunker Lake Boulevard are in anticipation of a temporary increase in traffic during Highway 10 construction in 2022-2025.
This project will increase intersection capacity by providing additional travel and turn lanes and constructing a multi-use trail along a segment of Bunker Lake Boulevard. It will also widen the Oxbow Bridge on Bunker Lake Boulevard to the east of TH 47, which will accommodate a new turn lane onto northbound TH 47.
The intersection of Kettle River Boulevard and Camp 3 Road has posed safety concerns due to vehicle accidents and near/miss accidents. Anoka County, in partnership with the City of Columbus, will be temporarily closing the section of Camp 3 Road between Lake Drive (CSAH 23) and Kettle River Boulevard (CSAH 62) for a period of 6 weeks to collect traffic counts, determine driver patterns, and obtain driver feedback to aid in determining safety improvements at the intersection of Kettle River Boulevard and Camp 3 Road.
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.

2021 MnDOT Projects in Anoka County
Proposed Highway 10 and Highway 169 improvements in Anoka, Coon Rapids and Ramsey would reduce congestion, increase safety, and provide a more reliable route through the area.
MnDOT is making safety and operational improvements at various intersections along Highway 47 and Highway 65. Construction began in spring 2020 and is anticipated to be complete in 2021.
Highway 169 will be resurfaced from the north end of the Mississippi River bridge to Clay Street in Anoka. Highway 47 will be resurfaced from Pleasant Street to just south of Industry Avenue/Bunker Lake Boulevard in Anoka. The project also includes a new curb and gutter and drainage and ADA improvements. Construction is anticipated to begin in July 2021.
